The assessment consists of 20 questions in which users are asked about their preferences and tendencies. The Learning Styles Profiles analyze the responses according to three learning methods—visual, auditory, and tactile. Users may be identified as having a primary, primary and secondary, dual, or mixed learning style.Individualized ProfilesThe individual Learning Styles Profile displays the distribution of their responses in both chart and graph format. Users receive feedback about what it means to be a visual, auditory, or tactile learner, including tips and techniques for studying and learning new information.Accessing Learning StylesTo access the Learning Styles Inventory, click on the Assessments button in the purple menu bar at the top of the page and then select “Learning Styles Inventory”. Users taking the assessment for the first time will be asked to enter their name. This ensures that users who print their profiles will pick up their own results and not someone else’s. Users can save their results to their portfolio and retrieve their profile at any time.
