Assess Yourself: Self-Assessment Questionnaire
From ON COURSE, by Skip Downing.


ON COURSE demonstrates the choices that successful students make. Before learning more about those choices, take a few minutes to complete the following self-assessment questionnaire. Your scores will identify behaviors and beliefs you may wish to change in order to achieve more of your potential in college and in life. After completing the questionnaire, you will have an opportunity to take an inventory of your potential strengths and weaknesses as revealed by your self-assessment questionnaire.

Read the sixty-four statements and score each one according to how true or false you believe it is about you. To get an accurate picture of yourself, consider what IS true about you (not what you want to be true). At the end of the course or semester, you can repeat this self-assessment and compare your two scores.

Read the following statements and score each one according to how true or false you believe it is about you. To get an accurate picture of yourself, consider what IS true about you (not what you want to be true). Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. Assign each statement a number from 0 to 10, as follows:
Totally false 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Totally true
1. I control how successful I will be.
   totally false 10 totally true

2. I'm not sure why I'm in college.
   totally false 10 totally true

3. I spend most of my time doing important things.
   totally false 10 totally true

4. When I encounter a challenging problem, I try to solve it by myself.
   totally false 10 totally true

5. When I get off course from my goals and dreams, I realize it right away.
   totally false 10 totally true

6. I'm not sure how I learn best.
   totally false 10 totally true

7. Whether I'm happy or not depends mostly on me.
