TITLE: Project 2: Vark inventory learning style

YEAR: 2013

Introduction VARK is a questionnaire that provides users with a profile of their learning preferences and tells us something about our-self that we may or may not know. The questionnaire alerts people to the variety of different approaches to learning. It supports those who have been having difficulties with their learning and has particular applications in business, sport, training and education. The purpose of this report is to identify our learning style to understand the different learning strategies that can we applied in our studies. Our VARK preferences can be used to help us develop additional, effective strategies for learning and for improving our communication skills.

The test result and the description of your learning style: The VARK Questionnaire Results
Your scores were: Visual: 2 Aural: 8 Read/Write: 7 Kinesthetic: 3

I have a multimodal (ARK) learning preference. Multimodal Study Strategies The multimodal style of learning means that I have a mixed combination of potentialities of the learning styles. The 0 in the visual category means that I am lacking potential in that area as a learning style. But I have a very balance learning style. 60% of the population has that particular style. One advantage of being multimodal is that I can adapt to different teacher s styles; so I could be effective in different circumstances and environment. I could switch to the teachers way of teaching because I have many resources to understand and communicate the information.

Select the Study Strategies that apply to your learning preferences strategies of learning and communicating from that category; but, I understand that I could use strategies
from the other styles.

According to my score, READ/WRITE category is the highest which means that I need to apply more

Conclusion Show us the importance of knowing our personal learning style is that Vark supports those who have been having difficulties with their learning and has particular applications in sport, training and education. I consider the questionnaire alerts people to the variety of different approaches to learning and it is useful for everyone because it can help you to develop different strategies that sometimes we need in our life. People should take advantage of their preferences and use the learning strategies listed in the help sheets on this website. These can be used to investigate your preferences and to explore your own views about whether the preference is accurate and helpful. I agree with my VARK result because this helps me to understand and realize what kind of preference, strategies and learning style I need to develop and put in practice to become more successful.
