Key Takeaways

  • LASSI scales are related to the skill, will, and self-regulation components of successful learning.
  • LASSI assessment and instructional modules target essential learning and studying skills, and are best used at the beginning of any program of study, to prepare learners for educational transition, or as a diagnostic intervention at any stage. Since the scales measured are transferable to any area of study or career sector, any program or training can integrate this assessment into an onboarding process. For example, the LASSI has been used in nursing and medical programs, freshman orientations, advising and counseling programs, learning intervention programs, and athletics programs, among others.

The LASSI assessment was researched, developed, and tested by Claire Ellen Weinstein, Ph.D., David R. Palmer, Ph.D., and Taylor W. Acee, Ph.D., at the University of Texas at Austin. It has been used in more than 1,000 programs nationwide to diagnose and address study skills.
