Pat,

I use the LASSI with probationary and other at-risk students and find it
very useful in a one-on-one situation.  I ask the student to take the
LASSI before we meet and then use the results to help design the
Academic Coaching plan with the student.  I highly recommend it for
helping to identify and assess areas of need and for exposing-by means
of the questions and recommendations- the student to approaches to
learning he or she may not have considered. I haven't found anything
better for this purpose.

If you have used are using the LASSI, Learning and Study Strategies
Inventory, have you found it helpful?  We are thinking of using this
diagnostic to help at risk students improve their study skills.  Do you
know of any other diagnostic that might be better?

Thank you.
