The eLearnReady survey is a good tool for students that are new to online courses because it gives the students feedback on their answers using graphics and scales of readiness. They will benefit from the tips that are given. It can also be a challenge to students if they do not know how the Likert Scale works. I think adding a visual graphic scale to identify the positive and negative direction ends of the scale. It will also help remind students that are not new to online courses and what they can do to help keep them motivated. Teachers will benefit from this information because they can see the average skill and confidence levels of the students. This will help the instructor make adjustments to the course as deemed necessary.
