CAES Student Support Services

LEC® Assessment​

All students in the College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science (CAES) with negative term decisions such as Risk1, Risk2, PROB or FPRR are required to complete an LEC® (Learning Enhancement Checklist Revised) assessment​ and attend a group feedback session with the Student Support Services (SSS) section. 

LEC® Assessment

This process begins by means of the online LEC® Assessment which will be available for you to complete online until 16:00 on 03 September 2021 via caeslecr.ukzn.ac.za

It is compulsory for all at risk CAES students to do the LEC® assessment online unless you did it in the 2nd semester 2020 or the 1st semester 2021 (in which case you do not need to repeat the LECR assessment again but you need to attend a group feedback counselling session as per dates, times and zoom links on the right). Failure to complete the LEC® assessment and have a group feedback session will result in you being deregistered after 03 September 2021

Group Feedback Session

Once you have completed your assessment, you will then need to take part in a 60-minute group feedback session online via Zoom. These sessions will take place until 03 September 2021 weekdays during office hours.

You can check the group feedback information (below) for the available online group feedback times and dates for your campus, as well as the zoom meeting link details and then join an online zoom session.

Note: Only the first twenty-thirty students will be allowed into the session so if you miss that one, please go to another session later in the day or on another day. We suggest that you try to do your  LEC ® assessment and group feedback session as soon as possible once you have received your results. 

Once you have done the LEC® Assessment online and attended a group feedback session online, your registration will be confirmed provided you have no other registration holds (e.g. financial holds). Please note that although you will initially be allowed to continue with the registration process even if you have not completed the LEC® Assessment online and attended a group feedback session online by close of registration on 27 August 2021, you have until 03 September 2021 to complete the LEC® Assessment online and attend a group feedback session before you are deregistered. This means that you MUST ensure that you have completed the process by the latest 16h00 on 03 September 2021 to avoid deregistration.
