You may want to look at Claire Ellen Weinstein's new assessment, "LASSI for
Learning Online." It's designed to help students develop greater awareness
of their learning and studying strengths and weaknesses in online settings.

> Hi!  
> 
> Here's a late Friday afternoon question:  Our new math lab coordinator
> wants to pilot a modular, computer-based developmental math course next
> fall. From the pool of all the developmental math students, he will have
> to choose a handful for this pilot. He asked me if I have an inventory
> or some such tool that would indicate a student's aptitude for that kind
> of class. There are learning styles inventories that can suggest that a
> student would have relative ease with visual (and perhaps kinesthetic?),
> independent learning, but I'm wondering if there is something specific
> for this kind of learning situation? So my questions are: 1. What are
> the skills and/or predilections needed for success in a computer-based
> modular class?  2. Are their instruments currently available to assess
> these skills?
> 
> Thanks for your generosity in sharing your wisdom, knowledge, and
> opinions (not necessarily in that order!).
