In the process of education, instead of classifying students according to their insufficiency, teachers should try to get to know them and determine their cognitive, sensorial, and kinetic characteristics. This study on improving learning style inventory, which aims to help classroom teachers determine students' attributes in individualized educational activities in elementary schools, the first step in obligatory education, originated from the need mentioned. The study involved four stages: determining the questions for the style inventory, preparing the trial inventory, applying the inventory, and determining validity and reliability. In the scope of the study of the reliability and validity, place was determined as fifth class students who studied in the centre of the city of Çanakkale. The study sample were fifth class students who numbered the same as the number of the result when we multiply the question number in the inventory by the step number in the degree scale. All the data obtained at the end of the analysis were analyzed using SPSS. As a result of the analysis, 8 factors were determined. The 27-question inventory was formed from the limitations of which the factor burdens were determined. A bibliography is included.
