DANTES Distance Learning Readiness Self-Assessment (DLRSA)

The DLRSA was developed to help prospective distance learners self-assess their readiness for distance learning.

Taking a distance learning (DL) course is another way to achieve your goals. While DL offers a lot of flexibility, there are other considerations for students to think about when making choices regarding their educational program. The following self-assessment was developed to give you the opportunity to assess your skills and identify possible weaknesses that may affect your success when taking distance learning classes. This instrument is not meant to substitute for educational counseling or to deny you the opportunity to pursue a distance learning class. Your honest assessment of your skills and behaviors is in your best interest. We hope this assessment will help you to have a successful educational experience, whether you choose distance learning or face-to-face classes.
