I think that VARK is a great tool and resource that teachers should use.

Time spent reviewing site: 30 mins
Used in course

A straightforward tool that has high face validity but little reference to
research showing real analysis. Useful for teachers or preservice teachers to
look at ideas related to learning styles, problem solving styles or multiple
intelligences

Technical Remarks:

Can select more than one response for a situation. May be appropriate but little
information given.

The acronym VARK stands for Visual, Aural, Read/write, and Kinesthetic sensory modalities that are used for learning. The interactive learning styles inventory (VARK) provides immediate scoring (if you have Java script)based on a 14-item questionnaire. Explanations of VARK scores are available that focus of effective study skills for learners with different learning preferences. Site also contains additional materials for the teacher educator including summaries of related research.
