This collection of online resources provides examples of self-administered assessments designed to help students evaluate their readiness for online classes. Most of the resources have been developed and used by universities.
Dr. Marcel Kerr from Texas Weslayan University developed ToOLS as a measure of online student success. It can be used to predict various student outcomes such as end-of-course grades and computer self-efficacy. Additionally, the composite measure and subscales identify students' individual behavioral strengths and weaknesses regarding online learning.
This is a journal article from 2004 Performance Improvement Quarterly, 17(4) pp. 66-79 provides support for online readiness testing. The article also includes a questionnaire for students to evaluate their readiness for online learning.
The self assessment by DANTES (Defense Activities for Non Traditional Education Support) can be used by students to the opportunity to assess thier skills and identify possible weaknesses that may affect their success when taking distance learning classes. Once the test is started, one cannot go back to prior questions.
