Learning Styles Assessment

All Iowa Lakes Community College students may access the Index of Learning Styles Assessment (free of charge) by using the following link: https://www.webtools.ncsu.edu/learningstyles/

The purpose of this questionnaire is to assess each student’s individual learning preferences, which in turn will enhance educational success.  The online instrument, created by Richard M. Felder and Linda K. Silverman is used to assess preferences on four dimensions (active/reflective, sensing/intuitive, visual/verbal, and sequential/global).

When finished with the questionnaire, students will be given a line graph to show what his or her preference is for each dimension.  Below is a brief description of each.

For the most comprehensive description of these learning styles and how to fully utilize these, please visit with a Success Center Instructor on any of our five campuses.
