The Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) is a 10-scale, 60-item assessment of students’ awareness about and use of learning and study strategies. The focus is on covert and overt thoughts, behaviors, attitudes, motivations and beliefs that relate to successful learning in postsecondary educational and training settings.
The LASSI Scales
There are six items on each of the ten scales of the LASSI, 3rd Edition. These scales are: Anxiety, Attitude, Concentration, Information Processing, Motivation, Selecting Main Ideas, Self Testing, Test Strategies, Time Management, and Using Academic Resources.
Each of these 10 scales is primarily related to one of three of the components of strategic learning: skill, will and self-regulation.

The next screen to appear will be the LASSI assessment. You will be asked to respond to 60 statements. To help you decide which responses to select, we would like to explain what is meant by each option.
• By Not at all typical of me, we do not necessarily mean that the statement would never describe you, but that it would be true of you only in rare instances.
• By Not very typical of me, we mean that the statement generally would not be true of you.
• By Somewhat typical of me, we mean that the statement would be true of you about half of the time.
• By Fairly typical of me, we mean that the statement would generally be true of you.
• By Very much typical of me, we do not necessarily mean that the statement would always describe you, but that it would be true of you almost all the time.
After completing all the items and successfully submitting the results, a two-page report will be displayed listing your scores for each scale, together with your name, institution, date of administration, and an explanation of your results.
Please print a copy of your results and share them with your faculty advisor or a member of the professional staff in the Advising Office or Academic Resource Hub. There are a number of professionals on campus who can assist you in capitalizing on your strengths and further enhancing your skills.
