Additional In-House Resources

We have several resources available to students at our offices throughout the year. All are free unless otherwise noted. Here is a quick snapshot of what we have to offer:

Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI)

This is an electronic, web-based analysis available to you to discover your strengths and weaknesses in study skills. It is an 80-question test covering your knowledge, skills, and perceptions in: attitude, motivation, time management, anxiety, concentration, information processing, selecting main ideas, study aids, self-testing, and test strategies. At the completion of the test, you are given a 2-page report that details where you need to improve and what you can do to improve.

To take this free test, see a Student Academic Support Services (SASS) staff member to receive your password. The results remain confidential unless you choose otherwise.
