Smarter Measure


Assess Yourself

Take the Smarter Measure learning readiness indicator assessment to learn about your strengths and weaknesses that support or do not support your success in eLearning courses. 

Your academic advisor or eLearning instructor can help you understand the results and show you how to improve in areas as needed. The Kodiak College faculty and staff all want you to stay in your class and do well—the results from this assessment will help us to help you!

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. In the First Time User Login box, enter the username (drop down menu) and password.
    Username: eLearners
    Password: success
  2. On the next screen, type in your personal information and answer the demographic questions. You will then be taken to the first section of the test.
  3. You will be emailed a PIN as soon as you start the assessment.  If you cannot complete all sections at one time, you may return to your assessment using the Returning Users login area with your email address and the PIN that was sent to you.

There are SEVEN sections of the assessment:

  • Life Factors
  • Personal Attributes
  • Learning Styles
  • Reading Skills
  • Technical Knowledge
  • Technical Competency
  • Typing Skills

After you complete the Smarter Measure Process, you might want to email a copy of your results (the full report, not the summary) to Student Services staff.  After staff have reviewed your Smarter Measure Report, you will be sent an email discussing the likelihood of your success in eLearning courses based on your assessment results.  A face-to-face or telephone conversation may also be recommended as part of this process.
