The purpose of this
series of pages on learning styles and strategies is to:
There are many measures of learning
styles, but the one we are considering here is Felder and Solomanís
"Index of Learning Styles" (ILS). It was developed to help students and teachers of undergraduate science and engineering courses.
The ILS is
based on the answers to a set of 44 (
"a" or "b" type) questions.
The scores provide estimates of an individual's
"position" in 4 learning styles dimensions:
Different learning strategies are
suggested based on affinity to the different dimensions of learning, and grouped results can be used
by teachers and lecturers to guide
design and delivery of courses.
| The ILS is NOT a measure
