College students have varying levels (from very high to very low) in their Confidence and Enjoyment of Learning. This usually depends on the subject matter and type of assignment. Becoming aware of the subjects and learning assignments you may have experienced lower levels of confidence and enjoyment is the first step towards finding new ways to approach your academics.
Take this short questionnaire as a way to better understand your potential learning roadblocks.
