Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI)

What is the LASSI?

The LASSI is a research based 60-item assessment designed to help students improve their learning and study strategies. It helps identify students' strengths and weaknesses in the ten evaluated scales. 

The following are explanations of the answer choices you will have during the assessment:

  • Not at all typical of me: the statement would be true of you only in rare instances
  • Not very typical of me: the statement generally would not be true of you
  • Somewhat typical of me: the statement would be true of you about half of the time
  • Fairly typical of me: the statement would generally be true of you
  • Very much typical of me: the statement may not always describe you, but it would be true of you almost all the time

 How to take the LASSI

Go to www.collegelassi.com and input the following information under first administration:

  • School Number: 30291
  • User Name: egwy
  • Password: hxk8

The assessment will take about 20 minutes to complete. Save the email you receive. It has your Student Code to use later when taking the post-test.

What to do after you've taken the LASSI

Work through those prescriptions that match any weaknesses revealed.

Take a LASSI post test to confirm the weaknesses have been addressed. Take the post test one semester after you take the LASSI.

  • Go back to www.collegelassi.com and use the same school number and user name under second administration.

The 10 Scales of the LASSI

The 10 Scales of LASSI are grouped into three components of strategic learning: skill, will, and self-regulation. After completing the LASSI, the student report will show how your scores compare to other college students in these scales. The 10 scales are listed below:

  • Anxiety
  • Attitude
  • Concentration
  • Information Processing
  • Motivation
  • Selecting Main Ideas
  • Self-Testing
  • Test Strategies
  • Time Management
  • Using Academic Resources

Understanding Your Score

After completing the LASSI, you will receive a Student Report graph that can be printed out. Your results will show percentile scores compared to other college students that have taken the assessment. If your score ranges from 0-50 percent, you need to improve your study skills to help you succeed in college. If your score ranges from 50-75 percent, you may benefit from improving these study skills. If your score ranges from 75-100 percent, these skills may not need much attention, but working on them can help you gain new skills to better learning.

For the Anxiety Scale only, 50-100 percent indicates you are not anxious about your studies while 0-50 percent indicates you are anxious about your studies.

If you have questions about your results, you can reach out to one of the Success Coaches.
