An abundance of learning style inventories exist both in print and online. Instructors, therefore, have access to a variety of options; the challenge is in selecting the one that best meets the objective of the course, lesson, or experience. Not all learning styles are the same; they neither define nor measure learning styles in exactly the same way. Selection should be based on the following criteria: target population; time available for assessment; information desired; context; and application of results.
To get a more global perspective of a student’s learning style or to flush out patterns relevant to a student’s learning preferences, it is advantageous to administer more than one assessment.
