Abstract
A Self-Calculating, Computerized Learning Styles Profile and Study Skills Inventory are described with applications for its use in diagnosing and prescribing learning according to the individual needs of the student. After completing thirty-nine items on “How I Learn and Remember Best”, six charts relating to modalities, interpersonal and leadership skills are then visible on the Learning Styles Profile (LSP). The forty-two item Study Skills Inventory (SSI) provides results on sixteen study skills. The combination of both programs provides teachers valuable information about themselves and their students for the development of effective instructional strategies and assessment techniques. Matching a student’s learning style to a variety of study methods enhances academic achievement.
