First-Year Online Assessments

As a first-year student, you will learn more about our LEAD program during fall orientation and throughout your first year at Champlain.

However, as a part of the LEAD program, all students are required to take two online assessments before they come to campus:

Completing these assessments will fulfill your  first year LEAD requirements: LEAD 101 and LEAD 106 respectively. Please note you will still have other LEAD requirements to complete throughout the year. You can speak with your PA for guidance once you arrive on campus. 

Neither of the assessments will take you very long, nor are they graded; these are tools that will help you understand yourself better and will give us a strong understanding of how to better serve the Champlain College student population.

Please remember that both of these assessments, MBTI and Financial Assessment, need to be completed before you arrive on campus and are due by August 8, 2014.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

Thoughtful self-assessment is key to thriving in college and making informed and strategic educational and career decisions. Prior to arriving on campus, all new students complete a brief online personality inventory called the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), which provides a system for understanding human behavior. Going through an MBTI interpretation will be helpful as students move into the Lifelong Career Management portion of the LEAD program.

To complete the inventory, follow the directions below. If you do not have access to a computer or have questions, please call Career Services at (802) 860-2720, and we'll gladly mail a copy of the inventory to your home.

  1. Go to
  2. Enter the account login "ChamplainCollege" (no space between words)
  3. Enter the account password "extramile"
  4. Leave the User ID area blank; the program will assign you a User ID
  5. Click "Log In"
  6. Scroll to the bottom of the page to pick an assessment
  7. Click Begin next to the option MBTI Step 1 (Form M)

Please complete the MBTI only. There is no need to complete the Strong Interest Inventory at this time.

Why Complete the Myers- Briggs Type Indicator®?

What are your personality strengths and challenges? Do you understand how  your personality affects your relationships with family, friends, teachers, roommates and co-workers? What makes your happy in life and at work?Are you in the right major? Understanding your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) results can help you answer these questions as you begin to plan for your future.

There will be many opportunities to receive your results in Concept of Self classes (part of the Core Curriculum), small group LEAD workshops or in one-on-one appointments during the academic year. You will receive notices about the available options for participating in MBTI interpretations during the semester.

Financial Sophistication Assessment

Part of becoming a well-rounded citizen is learning how to make financially responsible choices. As a Champlain student, you are asked to complete two financial assessments to survey your financial knowledge and habits—one before you arrive on campus as a first-year student and one when you are a senior. All information is kept strictly confidential and will only be used as aggregate data.

When you arrive at Champlain, our innovative financial sophistication program will be an integral part of your LEAD program and education. You will have access to workshops and activities that will help you learn all that you need to know to be financially savvy. Whether you are starting from the basics or already have experience managing your personal finances, we will help you find the workshops that best fit your needs.

During the summer, all incoming students will receive an email with instructions and the link to complete the assessment online. This email is sent to students' Champlain College mymail  account. Please remember this assessment is due by August 8th, 2014
