Take the quiz that reveals YOUR best learning style and how it can help you retain information

  • TutorHouse quiz reveals the best learning method for each individual
  • Ten questions ask students to think about how they react to different scenarios
  • Most people are visual, auditory, read / written, or kinesthetic learners










Whether you’re revising for an exam or revising for a presentation, a quiz on identifying different learning methods promises to help you maximize the amount of information you can retain.

Made up of ten questions, the Tutor House quick quiz asks participants to think about how they would react in a series of scenarios.

This technique reveals whether they would benefit the most from visual, auditory, reading and writing, or kinesthetic (interactive) learning methods.

Created by Tutor House in partnership with education experts, the quiz examines the widely used VARK (visual, auditory, reading / writing, and kinesthetic) learning styles developed by Fleming in 1987.

Tutor House online study service has launched a new quiz to help students understand the best learning style to help them remember information (file image)

Visual learners are likely to respond to visual stimuli like photos and videos to remember things.

Meanwhile, auditory learners prefer to listen to instructions, while readers / writers prefer to write things down and recite them.

Finally, kinesthetic people learn best by taking control of their learning, using a more tactile and interactive approach.

Speaking about how the quiz can benefit each individual, Tutor House Founder Alex Dyer said: “Exam season is not an easy time of year, so we are happy to help students find the best way to revise.

“Everyone is different and I think it’s important that we recognize that not everyone absorbs information in the same way.

“Unfortunately, most schools don’t adapt to different learning styles, so most of the time it’s up to the students themselves to adapt their learning. “

ANSWERS

MAINLY Vs

Visual – where infographics and videos will help you the best.

Creating a relationship between words and symbols or graphics (rather than still images) stimulates memory in the best way for the visual learner.

PRINCIPALLY

Auditory

Talking and listening to educational material is the most beneficial.

Oddly enough, emails are also included in this category – although emails are a text-based form of communication, they are often written in a familiar manner and as if the sender is speaking aloud.

MAINLY Rs

Read write

As the name suggests, writing things down and re-reading them is the most effective technique.

Lists, diaries, essays and reports are the tools most used by the “read / writer”.

MAINLY K

Kinesthetic

Practical physical learning is best supported by “real” material, such as participating in a demonstration or learning from real case studies.

Kinesthetic (interactive / tactile) learners also learn well by hearing people’s experiences.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT LEARNING STYLES?

A popular and long-standing theory in education claims that people, and children in particular, are more receptive to certain methods of learning.

It indicates that people will often fall into one of three main categories: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic.

There can be some crossover between different styles, but a person will favor one more method, experts say.

A visually-dominant learner absorbs and retains information better when it is presented, for example, in the form of pictures, charts and graphs.

A hearing-dominant learner prefers to listen to what is presented. He or she responds better to voices, for example, in a conference or group discussion.

Hearing your own voice repeat something to a tutor or trainer is also helpful.

A kinesthetic dominant learner prefers a physical experience. She enjoys a “hands-on” approach and responds well to being able to touch or feel a learning object or prop.

Although it has been around for a long time and is supported by 96% of teachers, recent studies have shown that the concept is inherently flawed.

Many researchers believe that the concept is wrong and that people do not have a preferred method of learning.
