This popular inventory is an informal, self-reporting instrument that provides the high school or college-level student with an indication of the relative strengths and weaknesses in learning through different sensory channels: auditory, visual, tactile, and, in this newly revised edition, kinesthetic. It is especially useful for assessing the unique learning styles of specific learning difficulty students. The Study Tips component gives guidelines on how to maximise individual learning styles.
Administration and Scoring
The Inventory, completed in 5-10 minutes, yields scores for visual, auditory, tactile, and kinesthetic learning styles. It is appropriate for all students; LD youngsters may require assistance.
