If you had the greatest number of checks for question one, you are most likely an auditory learner, meaning you prefer to learn by listening. Take advantage of your natural ability and listen closely when your teacher is speaking, choose oral presentations when given the option, participate in class discussions, and talk through work with classmates and parents.

If you had the greatest number of checks for question two, you are most likely a visual learner, meaning you prefer to learn by looking. Take advantage of your natural ability and carefully read directions and assigned reading, take detailed class notes, draw pictures and use concept maps to remember and organize information, and focus on what your teacher is saying by watching her facial expressions and paying close attention to any visual information provided or written on the board.

If you had the greatest number of checks for question three, you are most likely a kinesthetic learner, meaning you prefer to learn by moving. Take advantage of your natural ability and take part in hands-on activities when given the chance, take short breaks to move around when studying, and select assignments that allow you to build models or other physical projects.

Remember: Just because you may have scored higher for one learning style, doesn't mean you don't have the traits of the other styles as well. Try different strategies and see what works best for you!
