Hay Group Logo Kolb Learning Style Inventory - Version 3.1 Kolb Learning Style Inventory Summary Report UserName firstname.lastname@example.org Date 5/21/2012 94711 AM Preferred Learning Style Diverging Learning Profile The graph above indicates how much you rely on each of the four different learning modes Concrete Experience, Reflective Observation, Abstract Conceptualization, and Active Experimentation. These learning modes make up a four-phase cycle of learning. Different learners start at different places in this cycle. Effective learning eventually involves all four phases. You can see by the placement of your kite which of the four learning phases you tend to prefer in a learning situation. The closer the points of your kite are to the 100 ring on the circle, the more you tend to use that way of learning. grid-results-left Your Cycle of Learning grid-results-corner grid-results-bottom The closer your data point is to the center of the grid, the more balanced your learning style. If the data point falls near any of the far corners of the grid, you tend to rely heavily on a particular learning style. If your data point falls near a corner of the grid in the un-shaded area, you tend to rely heavily on that particular learning style. If your data point falls in a shaded area then your style is characterized by a combination of the two adjoining learning style types. For example, if your data point falls in the shaded area between the Accommodating and Diverging quadrents your learning style is characterized by a strong orientation to Concrete Experience (CE) balanced by an equal emphasis on Active Experimentation (AE) and Reflective Observation (RO), with little emphasis on Abstract Conceptualization (AC). If your data point falls in the middle shaded box, you balance CE AC and AE RO. Diverging Combines learning steps of Concrete Experience and Reflective Observation Diverging You are best at viewing concrete situations from many different points of view. Your approach to situations is to observe rather than take action. You may enjoy situations that call for generating a wide range of ideas, such as brainstorming sessions. You probably have broad cultural interests and like to…
Kolb defines Experimental Learning Theory (ELT) as “the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of expertise” (2005, p.194). This unique understanding of “learning” classifies how people process information and experiences into future actions through specific patterns or modes. By understanding which combination of the four modes individuals use to make sense of experiences and transform them into knowledge, education and the process of creating knowledge can…

Leaning Styles and Multiple Intelligences
Some people say those that cannot do teach. This is a terrible saying since teachers in fact have one of the hardest jobs of all. If learning something new is difficult, imagine how difficult teaching it to someone is. To be a successful teacher is hard work. No longer can a teacher simply write things on the board and expect their class to absorb the material…

To me, thats acceptable because all of those traits I was born with and I can’t change (except for extreme circumstances). I don’t consider my learning style to be a trait I was born with. I believe the way that everybody learns changes with different…
and students studying in Micronesia.
The aim of these interviews was to determine the preferred learning styles of our students, the majority of which are Micronesian. Since the shift in the pedagogy from teacher-centered to student-centered strategies within the classroom, it is pertinent to focus on the way students absorb and respond to learning. These methods of responses, or “learning styles,” are categorized into three separate components: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Educational…
