Students with this preference will do well if they read textbooks. Kinesthetic(K): This preference refers to using models. This test provides users with a profile of their learning preferences-about the ways that they want to take in and give out information.Aural (A): This preference includes information that is heard. practical experience. Read/write(R): This preference is for information displayed as words. class discussions. making charts. field trips etc. Students with this preference will do well by listening to lectures. talking with other students. Therefore.

Plan The Learning Style Inventory is administered on 10th standard students and scored and the learning preferences of the subjects are identified. Sample characteristics Sample size: 20 students (10 boys and 10 girls) of 10th standard studying in State Board schools Area: State board schools in Bangalore city Page | 8 .V. S. 2) To compare the gender differences in read/write learning preference style of the Learning Style Inventory. Gender difference in the read/write learning preference style is analyzed. Hypothesis There is no difference between boys and girls on the Read/Write learning preference style.METHODOLOGY Aim of the study 1) To assess the learning preferences of 10th standard students studying in state board schools using the Learning Styles Inventory by Dr. Surya Rekha.

This is not a timed test.The instructions are given. 2) Avoid giving additional contextual or situational information as this may bias the responses to the questionnaire. Instructions “Given below are a number of statements about your preferences while learning. 3) The subject should be instructed to answer the questions for himself/herself and not for others.Materials 1) Learning Styles Inventory with 40 questions. but work as fast as you can. 2) Scoring Key and norms 3) Writing materials." Controls 1) Make sure the subject has understood the instructions. Page | 9 . After the subject completes the inventory the experimenter scores the responses and analyses the subject’s learning preference referring to the norms. If you do not agree with the statement do not put any mark against it. Procedure The subject is seated comfortably and given a copy of the Learning Styles Inventory . Read each statement and put a tick mark next to it if you agree with the statement.

Find out the total statements preferred in each style separately . Page | 10 .Now refer to the norms and see whether she has high. Compute the mean for read/write learning preference for boys and girls and compare. it means that she has marked one preference for Visual learning style. For example if the subject has marked statement 1. Marking statement 10 means she has marked a preference for Aural and so on. moderate or low preference for each of the styles.Analysis of results Refer to the scoring key and identify the preferences of the subjects for each type of learning.

GROUP DISCUSSION This study investigated the Learning Style Preferences of a sample of students studying in the 10th standard under the State Board syllabus. an attempt was made to investigate gender differences on this learning style. We can conclude that the subject has ‘HIGH PREFERENCE’ for Visual style ans has ‘LOW PREFERENCE’ for Read/Write style. Page | 36 . Since our educational system mainly caters to the needs of students with a predominant Read/Write learning preference style. It was hypothesized that there is no gender difference between boys and girls on the Read/Write learning preference style.The subject has scored 8 under Visual category and is interpreted as ‘HIGH PREFERENCE’ and 4 under Aural category and is interpreted as ‘MODERATE PREFERENCE’ and 3 under Read/Write category and is interpreted as ‘LOW PREFERENCE’. Her score of 7 under the Kinesthetic category is interpreted as ‘MODERATE PREFERENCE’.
