VAK Questions

Updated Feb 2005

Thanks to Neil Whitmill for this spreadsheet to help analyse children's learning styles. Neil writes: Well, we are working on identifying learning preferences of primary children and are trying to identify visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learners. We found the questions on the sheet somewhere and have adapted them for our own use. The Excel spreadsheet highlights the results and gives a visual feedback to the teacher of the preferences of each child. Where one learning style is very weak, support may be needed to make the learner able to access more of the curriculum opportunities. This is not a perfect science, but is an interesting indicator.
