Hey, i already did the Learning style questions. i am going to post my results and meaning of it, then i will add the direction of this assignment.
* FYI- I was always a sensing and visual person. if an assignment does not include those i have a difficult time understanding it.
Questionnaire Results for Cres Paul:
Reflective: 1Sensing: 9Visual: 9Sequential: 1
What do my results mean?
According to the model on which the ILS is based, there are four dimensions of learning style, with each dimension having two opposite categories (such as active and reflective). The reported score for a dimension indicates your preference for one category or the other.
If your score for a dimension is 1 or 3, you are fairly well balanced on the two categories of that dimension, with only a mild preference for one or the other.
If your score for a dimension is 5 or 7, you have a moderate preference for one category of that dimension. You may learn less easily in an environment that fails to address that preference at least some of the time than you would in a more balanced environment.
If your score for a dimension is 9 or 11, you have a strong preference for one category of that dimension. You may have difficulty learning in an environment that fails to address that preference at least some of the time.
here is the directions and tips
2. Review the results of your assessment using the explanation below.
3.In a Word Document, write at least 300 words in APA format (7th edition) describing the following:
a. Results of the assessment
b. How you learn best currently (before you knew the type of learner you were)
c. How you will modify your study techniques to fit your learning style, now that you know it.
What do the results mean? Barbara Soloman, Coordinator of Advising, First Year College, North Carolina State University explains:
Active Learners: tend to retain and understand information best by doing something active with it like discussing or explaining it to others. They enjoy group work.
Reflective Learners: prefer to think about it quietly first. They prefer to work alone.
Sensing Learners: tend to like learning facts. They are patient with details and good at memorizing things. They are practical and careful.
Intuitive Learners: prefer discovering possibilities and relationships. They are good at grasping new concepts and are comfortable with abstractions and mathematical formulations. They are innovative and creative.
Visual Learners: remember best what they see–pictures, diagrams, flowcharts, timelines, films, and demonstrations.
Verbal Learners: get more out of words–written and spoken explanations. Everyone learns more when information is presented both visually and verbally.
Sequential Learners: tend to gain understanding in linear steps, with each step following logically from the previous one. They follow logical steps when finding solutions.
Global Learners: Global learners tend to learn in large jumps, absorbing material almost randomly without seeing connections, and then suddenly “getting it.” They may be able to solve complex problems quickly or put things together in novel ways once they have grasped the big picture, but they may have difficulty explaining how they did it.
