LSI: Instructions for Beta Testing

Beta Testing by CHM 1020 Online Students Only within Blackboard

The learning styles inventory describes the way you learn and how you deal with ideas and day-to-day situations in your life. Below are 12 sentences with a choice of four endings. Rank the endings for each sentence according to how well you think each one fits wit how you would go about learning something. Try to recall some recent situations where you had to learn something new, perhaps in your job or at school. Then, using the space provided, rank a "4" for the sentence describing how you learn best, down to a "1" for the sentence ending that seems least like the way you would learn. Be sure to rank all the endings for each sentence unit. Please do not make ties.

Example of completed sentence set:
