This self-assessment form helps you determine your current level of readiness for this area of study. It is a starting point for you to begin preparation to demonstrate competency. While some of the topics listed on this form may seem new to you on first glance, keep in mind that the learning resources will help you gain an understanding of these topics. After filling out the self-assessment form, attend a “Getting Started” chat in the Learning Community to learn more about developing competency in this area. If you are unable to attend a chat, would like a chat transcript, or would like further help interpreting this form, contact the academic mentor for this Learning Community via the “Contact a Mentor” icon in the Learning Community. In order to gain competency in this area, you should complete the activities listed in the Course of Study (COS) and enroll in all available learning resources. The Course of Study for LAT1 may be found here: http://wsd1.wgu.edu/student/course/17420 (your WGU username and password will be required to log in to this link). After completing the COS, you should return to the self-assessment form to determine progress made on development of the competencies. At that point, the COS will also direct you to the pre-assessment to determine your readiness to demonstrate competency for the assessment.
Using the scale provided, estimate your current level of understanding of the given topic (where 1 means “not at all” and 5 means “very well”). Carefully consider each topic and respond appropriately. If you rate your current level of understanding of a particular topic at a 3 or below, you should engage in the resources listed in the Learning Resources column to develop the related competencies.
