In my opinion, I believe that eLearnReady is a great tool to use in when preparing students for online courses. Some of the strengths of the program is that it allows the learners to be very honest, because it is done anonymously, the questions are clear and easy to answer, and it was not too time-consuming. I also like that it has the ability to personalize individual results for each student. They also provide ways for them to do better in an online course. Teachers can use the data so they can better meet the needs of the students.
A disadvantage of the program is that it does not have an open-ended question section where students can leave feedback. This would help give more specific details to their answers. Although giving an honest answer is a strength, honesty can also be a disadvantage as students sometimes click through answers to get it done and are not always honest.
