Smarter Measure
Instructions (pdf)
SmarterMeasure indicates the degree to which an individual student possesses the attributes, skills and knowledge that contribute to success including the following non-cognitive factors:

  • Self motivation
  • Time management skills
  • Self discipline
  • On-screen Reading Rate and Recall
  • Persistence
  • Availability of time
  • Ability to use a laptop, printer, software, and the Internet
  • Typing speed and accuracy

SmarterMeasure does not rely on simple self-assessment questions with obvious “right” and “wrong” answers. Rather, SmarterMeasure uses a sequence of activities to measure the degree to which students possess the traits needed for success in studying at a distance, hybrid and/or a technology rich course.

SmarterMeasure provides an immediate score and diagnostic interpretation of results to the student and to their prospective school.
