Buyers Guide on Learning Styles Questionnaire (80-item) - Booklet
Revised edition - July 2006
We all have preferred ways of learning and learn better from some activities than others. This comprehensive booklet provides individuals with all the tools they need to identify their preferred learning style(s), to select learning opportunities that suit stronger style(s) and to develop weaker styles. The booklet contains information on the Learning Cycle, as well as the 80-item Learning Styles Questionnaire and scoring. This booklet supersedes Using Your Learning Styles (1995) and The Learning Styles Questionnaire (80-item version) published in September 2000 (ISBN 1 902899 07 5).
Important Note: If you have used The Learning Styles Questionnaire (80-item version) before, it is important you are aware of the key changes we have made to the 2006 edition.
More comprehensive "Suggestions for Action" - now based on each indivdual question.
The Questionnaire has been re-numbered to make the Score Key easier to use.
