This study investigated the learning style preference of 72 elementary preservice teachers who were near the end of their third year of collegiate study. A learning style inventory, the Style Analysis Survey, was administered to determine learning style preferences. The categories assessed were: (a) using physical senses; (b) dealing with people; (c) handling possibilities; (d) approaching tasks; and (e) dealing with ideas. Overall, the subjects possessed some common characteristics. They showed an inclination toward being visual learners who were extroverted, closure-oriented, and global learners.
