The Learning & Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) is a self-assessment that shows how a student views her or himself as a strategic learner. This is 10 scale, 60 item assessment that looks at the three components of strategic learning: skill, will, and self-regulation.
Academic advisors at Kodiak College use the LASSI to improve the quality of advising and placement for new students by discussing the how the non-cognitive factors and habits of mind that are measured on relate to success in college. Students who score lower than desirable on the LASSI will be encouraged to take a college success course, participate in Student Coaching, and/or take advantage of other support services that are available. The LASSI is free and it is administered to Kodiak College students when they take the Accuplacer.
