An annual VARK Subscription provides you with the rights to use the principles of VARK in teaching or training programmes both in-house and externally.
Your subscription gives you access to a VARK Site – you can direct your students, trainees, research participants, staff or clients to your VARK site to fill in the VARK questionnaire, without the advertising included on the public VARK website. They will immediately find out their VARK learning preference, and that preference will be automatically saved for you to access and download for your own database use. This makes collecting your VARK results very easy as there is no software to install – you just subscribe, we set it up for you, and you direct your participants to a unique website address that we provide.
Your subscription will give your participants access to the VARK Questionnaire, Helpsheets and Worksheets.
The questionnaire included can be either the standard 16-question VARK Questionnaire, the VARK Questionnaire for Younger people (ideal for use in schools and colleges because the language is suited to those aged 12-18), or the VARK Questionnaire for Athletes. Currently, only the English-language versions of the questionnaires are available in the subscription system.
Your VARK Site can be set up to show Helpsheets designed for either academic or business use.
Just identifying their learning preference is not enough to improve someone’s learning – it is what they do that matters. So, to encourage participants to think about how they learn best (meta-cognition), and take appropriate action, you can optionally ask participants to fill in a Worksheet where they will be asked to reflect on their learning preference and think about the strategies that they expect to be most useful. Three worksheet versions are available: General, Learning, and Online Learning.
You will have access to an administration menu, from which you can view and clear the stored VARK results and the filled-in Worksheets. When viewing the results, you will see charts summarizing the results, as well as a detailed table of the scores and preference for each participant. You can easily download these results to analyze further in Excel (or similar).
There are also a range of settings available so that you can customize the content of your VARK site as well as how it works. For example, you can:
- Group results e.g. by class, department…
- Add text to the Home page, Questionnaire page, or Results page.
- Choose to have the results hidden from participants e.g. so that you can give them their results at a later workshop.
- Include or hide the Home page, Helpsheets, or Worksheet.
- Choose whether PDF Profiles are automatically downloaded by each participant, or whether you will download and distribute them yourself (Note: PDF Profiles are available as an optional add-on – see below).
The VARK Subscription is $37.50 USD 37.5 per annum and that includes the initial offer of 30 participants who can use the web address above to fill in the VARK questionnaire.
Blocks of additional participants can be added for an additional cost from $0.38 USD 0.38 to $0.76 USD 0.76 per participant (depending on how many are purchased). These can be added when you initially purchase your Subscription, or at any time during the year.
Your subscription lasts 1 year from the date that you first purchased it, or until your allocated participants have all completed the questionnaire, whichever is the sooner. Your subscription can be renewed at the end of your year for a charge of $25.00 USD 25, which will give you an additional 30 participants. Any participants remaining from your previous allocation will be carried over into the next subscription year once you renew.
Your annual subscription fee covers the first 30 people to fill in the VARK questionnaire in your VARK site. Places for additional participants can be added: Subscription Participant Add-on. Priced from $0.38 USD 0.38 to $0.76 USD 0.76 per participant.
VARK PDF Profiles
With this Add-on, when each recipient completes the questionnaire online within your VARK site, they will receive a VARK Profile as a PDF file – you can choose whether this is an Academic Profile, a Business Profile or a Short Profile. This is the same Profile that is offered on an individual basis when members of the public complete the questionnaire on the VARK website. The price is based on numbers, from $2.51 USD 2.51 to $10.57 USD 10.57 per profile:
VARK Customised Profiles
These use the same format as the VARK Profiles above, but offer the added opportunity for you to place information about your organization into each profile. More Information
