Ready for Distance?

Distance Education Readiness Indicator

Although distance education is a convenient alternative to the traditional classroom, you should be sure that distance education is right for you.

Successful and happy distance students have a few characteristics in common. The SmarterMeasure Learning Readiness Indicator, a free tool, will help you determine your strengths and weaknesses related to those of successful distance students based on personality and habits. This assessment does not determine whether you are eligible to take a distance course, rather it provides a summary of information that will better assist you in making decisions related to your education.

The assessment takes approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. At the end of the assessment, you will receive a detailed report of your results to help you better understand your readiness to succeed in online classes.
