One of the main objectives of the LRCT-1020 course will be to develop each student's Success Plan. The planning should include the opportunity for self-assessment from a number of perspectives (i.e. personality traits, learning styles, career interest inventories and aptitudes, etc.) The links below are sites that provide online assessment tools for your use.
Study Skills and Motivation Inventories
Learning Styles Inventories
Learning Styles - This is a good, easy to use Learning Styles inventory. It provides the user with some fundamental diagnosis, and then it displays a page of very useful, study and classroom strategies and recommendations.
Solomon and Felder's Index of Learning Styles is a 44-item questionnaire which can be completed online. Learning style results are returned immediately in four categories: active/reflective, sensing/intuitive, visual/verbal and sequential/global. After completing the test, read the article, "Learning Styles and Strategies" to learn about your style and how you can make the most of it.
To find out whether your learning style is Visual/Verbal, Visual/Nonverbal, Tactile/Kinesthetic or Auditory/Verbal, try Catherine Jester's online assessment tool, "A Learning Style Survey for College". Your test results are returned along with descriptions of each learning style and strategies for each type. To assess yourself further, see "Learning Style and Self-Assessment Tests".
VARK is a questionnaire that provides users with a profile of their preferences. These preferences are about the ways that they want to take-in and give-out information whilst learning.
