Future Online Students: Self-Assessment

SmarterMeasure - Learning Readiness Indicator

Are you a good candidate for online learning?

SmarterMeasure is a tool which helps you determine your level of readiness for taking online courses. You will be asked questions on topics in the areas of how well you can use a computer; how motivated, organized, and self-directed you are; how you prefer to learn new information; your typing speed and accuracy, and you will even be able to measure your on-screen reading speed and comprehension.

But relax, SmarterMeasure is fun. Your scores on this assessment will not prevent you from being able to take online classes, nor will your scores impact your grades in courses you may already be taking. SmarterMeasure is just being provided by CGTC to help you understand your strengths and weaknesses better as you prepare to learn online. SmarterMeasure is a tool to help you succeed!

After completing SmarterMeasure you will view a webpage which will show you your scores in easy to interpret graphs and text. In addition to that, you may receive an email from your instructor letting you know about sources for support in the areas in which you might could use some assistance.

To login to SmarterMeasure, please go to http://centralgatech.readi.info/. The generic username for all CGTC students is as follows:

Username: cgtc
Password: student

Please login in with the above information in the 'New Users' section of the page. After completing the assessment, SmarterMeasure will email you with a username and password to go back and view or complete the assessment.
