Online Learning Readiness Assessment

After completing the free SmarterMeasure survey and assessments online, the student receives a detailed report of their strengths and opportunities for growth, along with helpful resources. It provides students with measures of their readiness for online learning.

The Assessment

Is the student a self-starter? How many classes do they currently take? Are they working while attending school? Have they taken an online class before?

There are no “right” or “wrong” answers to the survey.

SmarterMeasure has six sections that take about 5 minutes each to complete. The student is emailed a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to access the website should more time be needed or to review the results.

It provides assessment results along with graphics to show the student’s score and how they compare to other UNG students.

Students can review and download their results.
