Know your strengths: self-assessment for students, by experts, with instructors in mind

LaunchPad Solo for ACES (The Academic and Career Excellence System) is an instrument developed to measure student strengths in 12 critical areas, both cognitive and non-cognitive. Created by counseling psychologists Paul Gore, Wade Leuwerke, and A.J. Metz, who have more than 30 years combined experience in college success and assessment, the ACES instrument prompts students to reflect on their habits, behaviors, attitudes, and skills. Norm-referenced reports indicate whether students are at a high, moderate, or low skill level in particular areas, as compared to students in other colleges and universities across the country. It is available standalone or as part of a package at a low cost.
