The SmarterMeasure Learning Readiness Indicator is an assessment that students often take during enrollment, an orientation course or at some other point typically early in the student’s learning experience at the school. It is an assessment that measures levels of non-cognitive indicators of student success. It is used to help students go into the learning experience with their “eyes wide open” about their traits, attributes, availability and skills. There are seven sections to the assessment. The seven sections are Life Factors, Individual Attributes, Reading Rate & Recall, Technical Competency, Technical Knowledge, Keyboarding and Learning Styles. Schools may provide all seven sections to their students or opt-out of some sections if they choose.
The assessment is provided to the students in a custom user interface that is branded with the school’s identity. On the login screen instructions are provided to the student so that they are informed about the assessment as well as their options for stopping and restarting the assessment. This verbiage can be customized by the school. This document is an example of the customized language that schools can provide to students.
