The Self-Reporting Surveys included as artifacts were designed to determine the perceptual (Learning You), cognitive (Intelligent You), and volitional (Willing You) competencies of students preparing to take an online mathematics methodology course. There is also a survey that can help students determine if online learning in “distributed-learning communities” is appropriate for them.
If teachers are to be able to tailor assignments, activities, and assessments to meet the learning styles, cognitive styles, and volitional willingness of students then, they will need baseline date ( self-reported and observed) on where students find themselves on scales of these competency areas. The Learning You survey was designed to determine Learning Styles and can be taken and scored online. To determine The Intelligent You, you can take two online surveys based on research of Howard Gardner’s “Multiple Intelligences Theory” to determine which of nine intelligences you display in learning situations. The Willing You survey was designed by this author to determine Volitional Competency based on self reporting of your conative capacities. Finally, a survey to test your Technology Tolerance is suggested to find the Luddites among us or a person’s tolerance for doing online learning in “distributed-learning communities.”

This battery of surveys is offered as evidence that the components of NETS-T-2c are taken seriously as I prepare “distributed-learning’ environments for prospective classroom teachers.
