L earning is only complete when an individual can reproduce the knowledge gained from educational institutions, self-study and observance. Retention of knowledge depends on the way students have gained the knowledge; learning style varies from person to person. One method that may be highly appealing to a particular student may not be appealing to another student. So learning style is a very subjective matter and there are different ways to categorize learning styles, this paper focus on VARK learning analysis quiz and learning styles as well as the implication of ...view middle of the document...

Aural Learners lean towards retaining information the best when presented in audio formats. These Aural learning individuals prefer to hear directions and speak answers, for example recording lectures and listening later. Aural learners greatly benefit from the advancement in technology making it is possible to download podcasts, recorded lectures or any conversations to mobile devises and listen to it on the go.
Read-write learners are those of individuals who able to be learn the best from reading/writing information. Learners who fall into this category are at high advantage over the other learning styles since this is most widely used form of teaching method in educational institutions. Information is rendered in formats such instruction manuals, lectures, written words from online sources, textbooks, lists and handouts (Fleming & Mills, 2011). Typical read/write learner is a person who operates equipment after reading the manual.
Finally, kinesthetic learner is the category of learners who prefer seeing or doing what is being learned. Hand on experience appeals the user more than listening, read-write, and visual learning methodology. This type of learning involves moving around and physically manipulation objects and materials for example learning a foreign language by acting out a scenario rather than viewing images or watching a video.

Over 60% percent of learners fall into the multimodal learner category (Fleming & Mills, 2011). Learners in this category swing back and forth between all the four learning styles according to situation and the subject. When in a visual presentation of information the learner may rely on recording the conversations (Aural) along with read/write (making notes) to retain the information and may choose to draw a diagram to convey the information to another learner in the same environment. Multimodal learner use all four learning style interchangeably.

I realized these results very much portray my learning style. For instance, attending a presentation as a visual learner enables me to learn the best by reading and analyzing the presentation. Jotting down key points, highlight the points in different color and if permissible record the audible presentation to help to recollect the information is a personally preferred learning style. The mixture of aural, video and read/write helps greatly to go back and create a virtual learning environment at a later stage to recollect and study the information and prepare myself for a test.
Few memory retention tips recommended for visual learners by Fleming & Mills (2011) are...
