Should You Take Online Clases? Free Tool Can Tell You

​Each year, about 10,000 DCCCD students take online classes. But online classes are not for everyone. You must be at ease using a computer. Also, you should have the discipline to handle learning on your own and not in a classroom.

Find out if you might prosper as an online student: Use SmarterMeasure, our free online tool. SmarterMeasure is a simple questionnaire. It measures your readiness to handle online classes.

Follow these steps:
 
  1. Click “Login as a First Time User.”
  2. In the Username field, select any of the choices from the pulldown menu. Note: Any of the options will work; don’t worry if you aren’t, for example, a Dual Credit or El Centro student.
  3. Enter the word student as the password.
  4. Answer the SmarterMeasure questions.
