Technical Data for Five Learning Style Instruments with Instructional Applications.
This manual presents five learning styles instruments and presents data related to validity and reliability and descriptive statistics. The manual also discusses the implications for learning presented by each of these learning models. For purposes of this discussion, "learning style,""cognitive style," and "personal style" are used synonymously. The five models discussed are: (1) the neuro-linguistic programming of J. Childers (1985), as assessed with the Student Learning and Interpreting Modality Instrument and the Learning and Interpreting Modality Instrument; (2) a multidimensional model of learning or cognitive style associated with the work of Piaget, A. Gregorc, and D. Kolb, and assessed with the How I Learn Inventory; (3) an approach to personality type or style based on a Jungian typology, assessed with D. Lemire's Ego Inventory; (4) a personal styles model adapted from the business world as measured by D. Lemire's Creative SELF Inventory; and (5) a decision-making model based on a five-part social learning model called the Judgmental Ability Narrative. An order form is included for the instruments.
