Learning Styles – How do you learn?

Research has shown that everyone has a unique learning style and that each person has the capacity to learn despite different learning preferences. This inventory will identify your strengths in regards to the way you prefer to learn and your preferred learning environment. We also know that preferences may change and in no way do we want to label or put anyone in a box. 

This inventory is a simplified version of a Learning Styles Inventory from Dr. Gary Price. Thank you to Dr. Price for allowing us to use this test.

Instructions: Answer each question either “True” or “False”. Your first spontaneous response is probably the truest answer you can give. When answering these questions, think of each question in the context of learning something new. For example, “When I am learning something new… I prefer to listen to someone talk. And then answer True or False.
