That's why it's important to talk about it one on one.  I always defer
to the student's opinion.  We get into a good discussion of how they go
about studying and what has most likelihood of succeeding.  The
questions can't go in-depth.  For example, highlighting in isolation is
a very weak tool, but if it's part of a whole system of, say, color
coding different topics, it can be useful. I always tell the student
that LASSI is more a tool for reflection than an exact picture.  It's
worked for me so far...

It can be helpful and interesting but many times students don't feel
that it gives accurate feedback. For some who are less successful
students, it can be very un-encouraging.

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.
