VARK: A Guide to Learning Styles

VARK stands for Visual, Aural, Read/Write, Kinesthetic. The site’s VARK Questionnaire for Younger People is a 16-question interactive inventory of learning styles, best suited to middle and high school students. Unlike other questionnaires, you select all of the answers that describe you in a question, rather than just the best one.

Based on the student’s answers, the results may well be a multi-modal learning preference. Learning strategy descriptions and suggestions are provided for each of the styles. Although copyrighted, this VARK inventory is free for use in student or faculty development as long as attribution is given. It is helpful to read the Introduction to VARK and about the VARK Modalities.
