Discover Yourself

This section links to self-assessments that are confidential for you. Each assessment has helpful information to help you balance your life and study habits. (By using these assessments you're asserting that you've read and understand the Terms of Service and agree to it.)

Read the descriptions of each assessment and decide which would help you best. You are welcome to take each of them. Each will have instructions to complete.

The main purpose for the K-CAT assessments is to provide you with profiles that will help you understand your personal strengths and potential area for improvement. Upon completion of each of the assessments, you will receive immediate feedback on your profile and interpretation instruction via the Internet.

Confidentiality Statement: The data collected from the assessment sites may be used to provide normative profiles on college students as group data. No information will be used that identifies you personally by name or characteristic.

The group data is stored on a secured server. All K-State eIDs (electronic identifications) will be removed after merging individual data into a group pool, so no personal information will be kept.

How to Access the Assessments
  1. Enter your eID. (For first-time users, you will not have a K-CAT identification. Simply go to the area for new users.)
  2. Print your profile before you close each of the websites. You will be unable to retrieve your profile once you leave the website. Please be aware that though you may take the CLEI on a mobile device, printing from mobile is not enabled at this time.
CLEI (The College Learning Effectiveness Inventory)

The CLEI is an inventory designed to measure individual attitudes, behaviors, and dispositions related academic activity.

Upon completion of the CLEI, you will receive immediate feedback on your profile and instruction via the Internet. The CLEI profile provides information that describes your individual strengths and weaknesses on the six areas of learning behaviors.

Once you have completed the CLEI, access the Program of Change Workbook using the following method:

HBA (The Health Behavior Assessments)

Unfortunately, the server for this assessment is down. We are working on providing this resource once again; however, we are anticipating it may be quite some time (6-12 months) before it is available. We do apologize for the confusion and inconvenience this may have caused anyone.

The HBA measures three areas of healthy lifestyle functioning including physical activity, eating behavior, and personal management skill. It includes a readiness measure that indicates your awareness and readiness to make personal improvement.

Upon completion of the HBA, you will receive immediate feedback on your profile via the Internet. The profile provides your BMI (Body Mass Index) as well as feedback on physical activity, eating behavior, and personal management skill based on health behavior guidelines.
