the learning process becomes easier
can lead to them getting high grades
by correctly matching student learning style and
resources, success in assessment can also be
influenced by correctly matching student learning
style and the types of questions they answer
1a. The mean weight of 5 chocolate bars is 50g. Sam ate one of the bars. The remaining 4 chocolate bars have a mean weight of 40g. How heavy was the bar that Sam ate? [for Read/Write learning style → text entry question type]
1b. You need headphones for this question. Listen to the question and write your answer in the box provided. (Choose the appropriate symbol for your answer from the drop down list.) [for Auditory learning style →text entry question type]
1c. The mean weight of 5 chocolate bars is 50g. Sam ate one of the bars. The remaining 4 chocolate bars have a mean weight of 40g. How heavy was the bar that Sam ate? [for Kinesthetic learning style →multiple choice question type]
a) 250g, b) 10g, c) 90g, d) 160g
1d. The mean weight of 5 chocolate bars is 50g. Sam ate one of the bars. The remaining 4 chocolate bars have a mean weight of 40g. How heavy was the bar that Sam ate? [for Visual learning style →multiple choice question type (as in 1c) with picture]
- students’ details, preferred question choices,
marks given per question and results
- assessment questions and answer
- question types, learning styles referenced by id
- logs of interactions with the system
- reference numbers for images and audio files
assessment for consistent identification between systems
to the questions and to students so that the system presents
the relevant questions according to the students’ learning
and 9 are set to 0 (default value) as their styles have not
been updated in the database.
Record: Answer, Mark
your choices > Complete VARK questionnaire
Get feedback (expected answers, given answers and scores
students prefer multiple choice questions because they
easily just pick an answer from those provided
themselves rather than listening to it – an indication of
read/write learning style
it’s a good idea to take assessments which suit their learning
style with some agreeing it can possibly lead to attainment
of good grades in summative assessments
learning styles since in real life they will not require just their
have different preferences for the way they learn
assessment can help students achieve high grades
in order to prepare for real life situations
better presentation for the visual learning style
