Locus of Control for University Students

The LOCUS assesses, in a very broad manner, students' beliefs about their ability to control their own destiny. The Locus of Control concept suggests there are two kinds of people - those who believe that they are in control of the events in their lives (Internals) and those who believe that their lives are controlled by circumstances outside of their control (Externals). In the college environment, students who have a high Internal locus of controls think that the grades they receive are a result of how much they studied, while students who have a strong External locus of control might think that their grades are a result of how hard the test was or how much the professor liked them. A student's outlook on how much control they have over his or her college experience impacts motivation and willingness to push through the tough times.

Screenshot Stress Barometer

This assessment evaluates student stress and then automatically provides resources to address each identified stressor. The Interactive version also shares this information with a student's mentor.

Check Check

Screenshot PLSI (Personality)

The Paragon Learning Style Inventory provides a measure of student cognitive and perceptual preferences. There are 16 learning type combinations (e.g. - ESFJ, INFP, INTP, etc.) and students receive an overview report, a detailed report and access to our Knowledge Module on Personality Types.

Check Check

Screenshot LASSI (Study Skills)

The LASSI is a 10-scale, 80-item assessment of student awareness about and use of learning and study strategies related to skill, will and self-regulation components of strategic learning. The focus is on thoughts, behaviors, attitudes and beliefs that relate to successful learning. Upon completion of the assessment, students receive an individualized action plan and access to learning materials to improve their weak areas.

Check Check

Financial Awareness

This assessment evaluates student understanding of basic finances. Once the pre-test identifies areas of weakness, students go through the Financial Awareness Knowledge Module. They then take a post-test to measure improvement.

Check Check

Screenshot DISC (Communication)

The DISC Temperament Assessment categorizes individual behavioral characteristics. The characteristics are broken down into four categories: D - Driving, I-Influencing, S-Stabilizing and C-Conscientious. Knowing our temperament categories allows us to better understand ourselves and the ways we interact with others of differing temperaments. From a school's perspective, knowing student temperaments is useful in classroom settings, advising, admissions and recruiting, marketing, coaching, mentoring and a myriad of other areas. Teaching your staff the DISC will help them to respond to the needs of your students in a far more effective manner.

Check Check

Screenshot Job Interest Profiler

This U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration instrument is a self-assessment career exploration tool that can help students discover the type of work activities and occupations that they would like and find exciting. The process will help them to identify and learn about broad interest areas most relevant to them. The assessment is composed of 180 items describing work activities that represent a wide variety of occupations as well as a broad range of training levels.

At the end of the assessment, students will receive an accurate, reliable profile of their vocational interests that:
1. Provides valuable self-knowledge about your vocational interests,
2. Fosters career awareness, and
3. Provides a window to the entire world of work via the 900+ occupations within the database.

Check Check

Screenshot Work Importance Profiler

This U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration career exploration tool helps students to focus on what is important to them in a job. It then identifies occupations that they may find satisfying, based on the similarity between their work values (such as achievement, autonomy, and conditions of work) and the characteristics of the occupations.

Check Check

Sensory Learning Styles

The Sensory Learning Style Assessment helps students find out what their primary and secondary learning style preferences are (Visual, Auditory, Tactile or Kinesthetic). It will also give them some customized study techniques that will help them get the most out of their classes with the least amount of academic stress.

Check Check

Navigator

The Navigator assessment identifies a student's particular areas of need and then rank orders the Campus ToolKit resources that will meet these needs. That gives students a personal map that they can use to progress through the system. Alternatively, the school may program a default list that can serve as a class syllabus.
