What Type of Learner Are You?

Have you ever had that experience when you walk out of a class and you realize that you did not comprehend or remember anything that you were just taught? It’s not always your fault but rather the way you are trying to learn the information. Most people don’t know what type of learner they are which can affect their grades, their interest level, and how much they dread going to class. Most people are stronger in their visual or kinesthetic suits, but some people better understand from an auditory learning style. Each teacher has a different learning style and that is affected by how much they actually know about visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners and what kind of learner they are themselves. Visual learners can use graphics and colors in their notes to help them study, auditory learners can read their notes out loud to themselves in order to comprehend their notes, and kinesthetic learners can learn the most from hands-on activities that help them stay connected and focused. In this quiz, you can find out what type of learner you are and use the tips to advance your learning and study techniques. Getting better grades in school as well as enjoying certain classes a little more will come with answering a simple 10 question quiz.
