The inventory is self-scoring and self-interpreting.
The booklets (only) are also available in French or Spanish
~ can be used to adapt instructional strategies to learner needs, to design alternative curricula, to help individuals select courses or work environments compatible with their learning styles.
Four dimensions are assessed. (1) Preferred Conditions for Learning: Does the student like teamwork, independent study, competition, classroom discipline, organized coursework, a close relationship with the instructor, or detailed information on assignments and requirements? (2) Areas of Interest: Does the student like to work with numbers, language, things, or people? (3) Mode of Learning: Does the student prefer to obtain new information through listening, reading, interpreting illustrations or graphs, or through hands-on experience? (4) Expectation for Course Grade: How well does the student expect to perform in the class?
The two forms are NON-EQUIVALENT: Form B offers high-school norms, and Form C offers junior high-school norms.
Forms A & B are written at a 7th grade reading level. Form E (easy-to-read edition), is written at a 4th grade reading level, and has college norms.
Kit includes: manual and 2 each of Forms A, B, C and E

~ (2007) is a manual for teaching listening skills to elementary and pre-school age students. Of the four basic types of communication (listening, speaking, reading, and writing), listening develops first. Even though listening is used the most, it is taught the least. Often educators believe that normal hearing children will develop good listening skills without any special instruction. This assumption leads to instructional practices which do not remedy student deficits in listening skill. In such cases, educational standing may improve with simple training and direction in listening.
~ (1993) helps children pay attention in school or when doing homework featuring an endless tape which plays an audible tone at variable intervals. The student listens for the beep while attending to class work. When the beep sounds, the student checks on a self-recording sheet whether he or she was paying attention to his or he work.
RANGE: all ages
ADMINSTRATION: Individual or Group LEVEL: A
~ (1999) is a resource to help educators identify factors and conditions that influence a child's performance in school. Helps to identify whether students "can't do", or "won't do" assigned work. The assessment/intervention model used is termed "Precision Teaching". The model recognizes that assessments include factors which are not under the teachers control, that evlauating individual progress is preferable to comparing students to each other, that testing (assessment) should be linked to instruction, that changing one thing at a time best identifies functional relationships, and that skills should be measured daily.
~ (2006) is designed to allow early identification of learning strategy and learning skills related to academic success. Designed for both special and general education students, this new self-report inventory assesses 10 primary constructs associated with academic motivation, learning strategies, and study habits. 7 scales focus on student strengths and 3 identify liabilities. Scales include: Study Strategies, Note-Taking/Listening Skills, Reading/Comprehension Strategies, Writing/Research Skills, Test-Taking Strategies, Organizational Techniques, Time Management, Low Academic Motivation, Test Anxiety, Concentration/Attention Difficulties, and Inconsistent Responding index.
