Please complete the following VARK questionnaire. Choose the answer which best explains your preference and circle the letter s next to it. Please circle more than one if a single answer does not match your perception.
Leave blank any question that does not apply. You are helping someone who wants to go to your airport, town centre or railway station. You would: a. You are planning a holiday for a group. You want some feedback from them about the plan. You are going to cook something as a special treat for your family.
A group of tourists want to learn about the parks or nature reserves in your area. You are about to purchase a digital camera or mobile phone. Other than price, what would most influence your decision?
Trying or testing it. Reading the details about its features. It is a modern design and looks good. The salesperson telling me about its features. Remember a time when you learned how to do something new. Try to avoid choosing a physical skill, e. You learned best by: a. You have a problem with your knee. You would prefer that the doctor: a. You want to learn a new programme, skill or game on a computer. I like websites that have: a. Other than price, what would most influence your decision to buy a new non-fiction book?
The way it looks is appealing. Quickly reading parts of it. A friend talks about it and recommends it. It has real-life stories, experiences and examples. You are using a book, DVD or website to learn how to take photos with your new digital camera.
You would like to have: a. Do you prefer a trainer or a presenter who uses: a. You have finished a competition or test and would like some feedback. You would like to have feedback: a. You are going to choose food at a restaurant or cafe. You have to make an important speech at a conference or special occasion.
Circle the letters that correspond to your answers e. If you answered b and c for question 3, circle V and R in the question 3 row. Fleming and Mills suggested four categories that seemed to reflect the experiences of learners. Although there is some overlap between categories, they are defined as follows.
Visual V : This preference includes the depiction of information in maps, spider diagrams, charts, graphs, flow charts, labelled diagrams, and all the symbolic arrows, circles, hierarchies and other devices, that instructors use to represent what could have been presented in words. It could have been called Graphic G as that better explains what it covers.
It does include designs, whitespace, patterns, shapes and the different formats that are used to highlight and convey information. It includes talking out loud as well as talking to yourself. Often people with this preference want to sort things out by speaking, rather than sorting things out and then speaking. Not surprisingly, many academics have a strong preference for this modality.
This preference emphasises text-based input and output - reading and writing in all its forms. People who prefer this modality are often addicted to PowerPoint, the Internet, lists, filofaxes, dictionaries, thesauri, quotations and words, words, words Kinaesthetic K : By definition, this modality refers to the "perceptual preference related to the use of experience and practice simulated or real.
It includes demonstrations, simulations, videos and movies of "real" things, as well as case studies, practice and applications. What about Mixtures? Learning is multi-dimensional. There are seldom instances where one style is used, or is sufficient, so we have a four-mode VARK profile. That is why the VARK questionnaire gives you four scores. Those who prefer many modes almost equally are of two types. There are those who are context specific.
They choose a single style to suit the www. There are others who are not satisfied until they have had input or output in all of their preferred styles. They take longer to gather information from each mode and, as a result, they often have a deeper and broader understanding.
Rather, it is designed to initiate discussion about, and reflection upon, learning preferences. It is not expected that any one preference will be dominant or that all participants will be multi-dimensional.
Correspondingly, there will be some people that have a strong or very strong preference that stands out from others. The most consistent finding from VARK questionnaire results is that people are very diverse.
We cannot assume that others learn as we do. Pay particular attention to zero scores on any mode and even more attention to them if the total number of responses is high. Zero scores in a profile are unusual and the person will often have an interesting story to tell. The power of VARK is that people understand it intuitively and it fits practice. Below are some points to note. Preferences may be masked by life and work experiences. Those with a multi-dimensional modal set of VARK preferences need to process information in more than one mode in order to get enough understanding.
People should be encouraged to try new learning strategies listed under their preferences. Experience tells us that many people become much more successful if they develop a range of learning strategies based upon their preferences.
It is clearly not helpful to use strategies that lie outside your preferences e. In both instruction and assessment of learning this mode is the dominant one. Leaders, and others who assist with learning, should use a variety of modes if they expect to reach every learner. Let me explore my easiest concepts in a different style.
What is VARK questionnaire? How does it work and what goal does it pursue?
Please complete the following VARK questionnaire. Choose the answer which best explains your preference and circle the letter s next to it. Please circle more than one if a single answer does not match your perception. Leave blank any question that does not apply.

Using the Online VARK Questionnaire
The results enable choosing the most effective learning strategies for a particular individual. Explanation: The learning process is a complex set of activities aimed at the acquisition of new knowledge, skills, and behavioral patterns. However, not all people acquire new information in the same way. People from different backgrounds, with different psychological particularities, preferences, and inclinations.
According to the VAK model, most people possess a dominant or preferred learning style, however some people have a mixed and evenly balanced blend of the three styles. Auditory learning style involves the transfer of information through listening: to the spoken word, of self or others, of sounds and noises. Kinesthetic learning involves physical experience - touching, feeling, holding, doing, practical hands-on experiences. Kinesthesia and kinesthesis are root words, derived from the Greek kineo, meaning move , and aisthesis, meaning sensation.
