Your Learning Style Profile
The table below represents some of the ways our learning skills, styles, and preferences may be categorized. This information is limited and will only provide a starting point for understanding how you learn best.
As you evaluate yourself, remember there is no one best way to learn! As unique individuals, we all have different personalities as well as learning styles and preferences. Throughout our lives, we must adapt to a wide range of learning situations-- and it is highly unlikely that our strengths will always match the demands of the situation. So the trick is to build on our strengths while developing other strategies and skills that will broaden our abilities.
Print this assessment and evaluate yourself. Then go to the table on Strategies to Strengthen Your Learning Skills for information on how to improve your learning potential. Knowing Yourself as a Learner will give you additional information.
You may want to consider enrolling in the Study Skills course offered by the college to get more detailed information and assistance. Or you can check out some of the assessments available on the internet.
Study Skills: How would you rate yourself in the following study skills (high, medium, low)? Areas in which you rate yourself low may be topics of this web site you will want to explore; or you may wish to enroll in a study skills course to develop these skills.
Learning Style: The categories below represent ways that you process information. Assess your "style" by determining how you learn best in most classroom situations (high, medium, low). Regardless of how you rate in these areas, you should consider ways to develop "other" styles so that you will widen your range of expertise!
Preferences: Considering these areas of preference will help you to determine where and when you should study for best results. (Rate youself; high, medium, or low)
