However, often other situations in life prevent them from being able to do so. The Life Factors section of this assessment asks questions about other elements in your life that may impact your ability to continue your education. The section measures five items: Time, Place, Reason, Resources, and Skills. You may be able to modify circumstances which impact some of these life skills. If so, you are % encouraged to take appropriate action to help yourself succeed. But some of the circumstances in life may be beyond your control. If this is the case, being aware of these realities and planning accordingly may be beneficial for you. The maximum possible score for this section is 100%. You scored a total of 80%. Your results for each of the five areas are below. 90 80% % 0% 25% 50% 75% 100% Detailed Item Results 100% 80% 95% 75% 75% 75% 75% 82 50% 25% 0 % Time Place Reason Resources Skills 4 Time 80 The amount of time you have available to participate in activities related to your school work is not really a concern for you. Consider yourself fortunate that you have ample time to devote to school work. However, you may need to plan for and budget your time so that you are giving due diligence to school work. Avoid activities like social networking which research has shown can easily consume too much time and distract you from studying. A generally accepted rule of thumb for time spent with college classes is that you should expect to study about 2 to 3 hours per week for each unit of credit in a typical 16 week class. Based on this rule of thumb, a student taking 15 credit hours should expect to spend%30 to 45 hours each week with school work. Realize that this is similar to the time required of a typical job. Continuing your education requires a substantial investment of time. Of course, if you are working while you attend school, you will need to budget your time carefully. As a rough guideline, your studying time might be divided as follows. If your time for reading thetime for homeworktime for review and tes tttal study course assigned text (per assignments (per preparation (avg. per time (per is week) week) week) week) 3 credits 1 to 2 hours 3 to 5 hours 2 hours 6 to 9 hours 4 4 2 to 3 hours 3 to 6 hours 3 hours 8 to 12 hours credits 5 10 to15 2 to 4 hours 4 to 7 hours 4 hours credits hours 3 Place Your answers indicate that having an identified, appropriate place to study is a minor concern for you. It is good that you have thought about the places at which you can study. Now you may need to communicate to others about your plans and how you would appreciate their respect of your privacy while studying. Review the resources below for helpful tips on places to study. Here are some helpful hints about creating an appropriate place to study. (1) Find an environment that suits you. Some persons prefer silence and some prefer background noise. (2) Select a comfortable place, but not so comfortable that you will fall asleep. (2) Claim the space as yours. Inform others the space is your study area and they are not to disturb items or you while in the space. (4) Avoid common areas such as kitchen tables or den couches. (5) Avoid multi- tasking. While you are studying close your email and do not participate in social networking. (6) Feed your stomach then your mind. If you are hungry you may not be able to focus and may be tempted to take frequent breaks to snack. (7) Be supplied. Keep all of the supplies such as pens, paper and highlighters at your study space. (8) Have a bright idea. Make sure that your study space has appropriate lighting. 4 Reason Your answers have indicated that you have well defined, strong reasons for going to school. Keeping yourself motivated with the goal in mind is important as you take your courses. You are encouraged to write down the ways that going to school will benefit you. Occasionally review this list to stay motivated. Several research studies have shown that the more education a person has, the more annual income they generate and the better their quality of life. Today, a college degree is an essential ingredient. Employers frequently use degrees as a way to screen applicants. Then even after you get the job your salary may be reflective of your educational credentials. On average, a person with a Master's degree earns $31,900 more per year than a high school graduate—a difference of as much as 105%! So keep yourself motivated and your eyes on the prize. 3 Resources Your answers indicate that the level of support and resources you have for going to school is an issue of minor concern. It is good that you recognize there are persons who can be your “cheerleader” to encourage you in the process. Give them a call or send an email letting them know you appreciate and need their support. If you have any gaps in your support network for items such as childcare, explore every possible option of assistance so that these factors will not be a road block to your educational progress. Read the resources below for more ideas about getting the support you need to be successful in going to school. To be successful, you really need the support of others and the appropriate resources. To make sure that you have access to the financial resources to continue your education, talk to the financial aid office at your school. If you are concerned about having the physical stamina, consider getting a physical exam from your doctor. If you have family or friends who can support you in ways such as childcare, have a discussion with them about your plans for going to school and express how you would appreciate their support. If appropriate, have a discussion with your employer. Ask if the company has an educational reimbursement plan and any policies regarding studying while on the job or during breaks. 3 Skills Your responses to this section indicate that you have had some success in the past with academic pursuits, but you are moderately concerned about your academic success now. Think about what you did in the past to be academically successful. Were there certain study strategies or ways that you did in the past to be academically successful. Were there certain study strategies or ways that you received assistance? If so, find out about all of the resources for academic support that your school currently provides. Many schools offer resources such as tutoring, writing support, etc. Review the resources below for more tips on being academically successful. College is where you become more intelligent. You are not expected to be a genius to get in, just prepared enough to know how to work and willing to make the necessary sacrifices of your time and energy. Do you know how to study? Can you stick with a task until it is finished? Being successful in college is often as much attitude as aptitude. Individual Attributes This section measures six items: time management, procrastination, persistence, academic attributes, locus of control, and willingness to ask for help. These attributes can be enhanced or improved through academic interventions. Ask your faculty member or academic advisor about the resources for remediation and/or support which your school may provide.

Your prior academic history indicates that you should not experience academic challenges. Keep up the good work! 3 Help Seeking The Help Seeking category reflects your willingness to ask for help when you encounter a problem. It is very important that you seek help from the faculty member or other appropriate person when you are confused about the course content. Your score indicates that you are moderately comfortable seeking help. When you experience problems in your courses, do not waste time, but seek help soon. 4 Persistence Persistence is a measure of your likelihood to finish what you started. Your score indicates a high rate of persistence based on your prior experience. Keep up the good work! 3 Procrastination Procrastination is putting off until tomorrow what could be done today. It is easy to delay starting work on assignments. Your score indicates that you are somewhat likely to procrastinate. You are encouraged to get started immediately on course assignments. Imagine how good it would feel to complete an assignment early. 4 Time Management Courses have differing expectations regarding attendance and/or participation. However, a significant amount of time is still required each week for reading course materials. Your score indicates that time management is not a problem for you. However, it is recommended that you plan for a specific number of hours each week to work on course assignments. 4 Locus Of Control Locus of Control is a measure of the degree to which you feel that you are in control of what happens to you. A person with high (internal) locus of control believes that their experiences are controlled by their own skill or efforts. Your score indicates a high degree of locus of control. This attribute will serve you well since many courses require the student to take much initiative in the learning process.
