Part IV: Plan for Success – Self-Awareness and Goal Setting

Plan for Success: Knowing Yourself and Setting Goals

Plan-Monitor-Evaluate Connection

Sometimes it is helpful to do some self-evaluation, before moving to the planning part of the Learning Cycle.  To help you in this process, this chapter begins with the evaluation part of the Learning Cycle. Before you begin your planning, you will consider where you are now. What strategies do you already know how to use? What are your strengths as a learner?  What do you hope to improve?

The information from your evaluation will inform your goal setting and planning for the semester ahead.

  • Evaluate your current learning skills and strengths using the Multiple Intelligences framework.
