The Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) is designed to gather information about learning and study practices and attitudes. Upon submission and approval of your school number, several statements will be presented that relate to learning and studying.
You are to read each statement and then select a response according to the following key:
Not at all typical of me
Not very typical of me
Somewhat typical of me
Fairly typical of me
Very much typical of me
To help you decide which responses to select, we would like to explain what is meant by each term.
By Not at all typical of me, we do not necessarily mean that the statement would never describe you, but that it would be true of you only in rare instances.
By Not very typical of me, we mean that the statement generally would not be true of you.
By Somewhat typical of me, we mean that the statement would be true of you about half the time.
By Fairly typical of me, we mean that the statement would generally be true of you.
By Very much typical of me, we do not necessarily mean that the statement would always describe you, but that it would be true of you almost all the time.
Before you begin it is important to know whether you have taken the LASSI previously. Choose the correct box below.
