My Learning Style Analysis


We all have our own way of approaching learning and, although we may think that our own approach is what most people use / is idiosyncratic to ourselves, you may find it helpful to know that theorists have developed a number of learning styles’ inventories, which attempt to help learners categorise how they learn.  While they should be approached with caution, they can offer an interesting perspective on what is otherwise “hidden”.


Reading My Report:

Step One:  Examine the total score for each of the seven learning styles.
The scoring range is from -36 to +36; therefore, each style can be
identified as either accepted if it has a positive score or rejected if it
has a negative score.

Step Two:  Determine the strength or weakness reported in each style.  The
following scale might be helpful as a general reference:
+28 to  +36 = Very Strong Acceptance
+19 to  +27 = Strong Acceptance
+10 to  +18 = Acceptance
+1   to  +9 = Minimum Acceptance
0     = Neutral
-1   to  -9 = Minimum Rejection
-10 to -18  = Rejection
-19 to -27  = Strong Rejection
-28 to -36  = Very Strong Rejection

Step Three:  Determine the rank order of your seven styles where the highest
score is first and the lowest score is seventh.

Step Four:  Examine your rank ordered scores and divide them into two or
three categories:  Those on top can be identified as helpful learning styles
that can be used to increase learning success.  Those in the middle may or
may not be useful in the learning process.  And, those at the bottom are
probably not useful and are probably not helpful in the learning process.

Step Five:  Examine the chart below to determine the types of learning
activities associated with each learning style.  If you think your survey
results and personal analysis are accurate, consider adding the activities
associated with your most preferred learning style(s) and replacing or
avoiding activities associated with your least preferred or rejected
learning style(s).  Once again, please remember any life style changes are
your personal responsibility.
