Is Online Learning for You?

Your score: 99

If you scored...

91–100: You are a good candidate for online learning!

76–90: You are probably a good candidate for online learning, but before taking an online course, you should examine your answers to see where you have “gaps” in your preparation.

51–75: At this time, you would be at a disadvantage in an online learning environment. You could become a good candidate for online learning, but definitely have some skill sets to develop first. Put some real time into these, and then measure yourself against the quiz again before taking an online course.

00–50: At this time, you would be at a serious disadvantage in an online learning environment. For now, plan on sticking with face-to-face instruction. If you feel you need to consider online instruction, first seek assistance in preparation from peers or from a school’s admissions office.
