LASSI: Learning and Study Strategies Inventory
The Learning And 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.
- Skill - information processing, selecting main ideas and testing strategies
- Will - attitude, motivation and anxiety
- Self-Regulation - concentration, time management, self-testing and using academic resources
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.
