The objectives were to identify learning strategy strengths and weaknesses of preservice teachers (n = 90) in an entry level educational psychology course that incorporated strategy instruction. Strategy use was assessed at the beginning and end of the course by the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI), a diagnostic inventory of 10 scales. A comparison of mean percentiles with LASSI norms on all scales indicated need for remediation by students. The results indicated that learning strategy scores varied according to student GPA and final course grade. Implications for preservice teachers as learners and potential teachers of strategies were discussed.
