The Concise Learning Styles Assessment
with Instructional Guide
by Jill J. Dixon, B.S.Ed., M.Ed. This tool was devised for students ages seven through adult in order to discover the primary and second and third level learning styles of each assessed student. It determines the strengths of all learners, whether they are auditory, visual, or tactile/kinesthetic. It contains no "fluff" or unnecessary material, but rather comes right to the issues involved. (There is no "weeding through" the book for the valuable pages.) It is very easy to understand and administer and score.
One of its unique features is that it determines not only the primary learning style, but also the level of strength of the primary and secondary learning styles! This is an invaluable feature of the assessment. For example, it is one thing to know that "Jerry" is primarily a visual learner. It is quite another thing to know that he is primarily a visual learner with average tactile/kinesthetic attributes and weak auditory processing skills. Or, for another of the very many possibilities: it is one thing to know that "Janie" is primarily a tactile/kinesthetic learner. Yet, it is much more advantageous to know that her auditory processing skills almost match her tactile/kinesthetic abilities, while her visual skills are very weak. Armed with this kind of knowledge, parents can make meaningful inquiries into various curricula and methodologies in their curriculum pursuits. They can also be well equipped for making decisions when it comes to mixing various curricula - something that is done as often as not. Remedies can also be applied to learning deficits due to teaching and processing methods when parents understand their children's unique learning styles!
The assessment also contains an instructional guide with "teaching tips." These instruct parents on the best ways to teach to the different learning styles of their students. Very often the misdiagnosis of learning difficulties with all of those attending complications, as well as frustration from homeschooling in general, can be avoided simply by the discovery of your student's primary and secondary learning styles and then teaching to those strengths (and weaknesses) accordingly! - Importance of Knowing Your Student's Learning Styles - - It sells for $8.98 and can be used by all of the members of the same family.
