The following is adapted from Independent Studies: Readiness to Learn. Centre for Teaching Excellence, University of Waterloo. Again, be as honest as you possibly can when responding. Give yourself 4 if you believe yourself to be Excellent, 3 if you believe yourself to be Good. If you are Adequate you are a 2 and 1 if you are Poor. Anything that you rate yourself 1 or 2 on indicates something that you might want to get help in trying to improve. For example, your university probably has a student assistance centre from which you can obtain coaching and/or skills training for free. Upgrading yourself in thosenareas in which you have a weakness is one of the ways you can succeed.
