The Self Administered Inventory of Learning Strengths for College Students.
Siegel, Janna; Lester, Shaun E.
Understanding how they learn best is important for beginning and returning college students. This self-awareness can assist students in developing their classroom learning, study skills, and instructional habits throughout their college careers. For this reason, a quick, inexpensive learning style inventory appropriate for college populations was constructed to aid them in understanding their learning strengths. The Self Administered Inventory of Learning Strengths (SAILS) was constructed as an alternative to traditional learning style inventories, which have some problems. The instrument, its rationale, and proper uses are described. The developed inventory assesses learning styles in the domains of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic preferences. The test has been piloted in several New Mexico community colleges and universities. Results have established that it is easily self-administered and provides useful information for college students. The inventory is attached. (Contains 10 references.) (Author/SLD)
