First and certainly most importantly, I was positively impressed with the range and thoughtful arrangement of your questions. I had to sit back and think for a few moments about the ways the short survey was thought provoking to me. In essence, the theory in VARK revolves around a supremely intuitive four-fold division of learning styles: Visual, Aural, Read/Write, and Kinesthetic (VARK). According to this theory, every individual has a particular set of preferences with regards to the absorption, integration, and retention of information and concepts. The impact of student learning styles using VARK was difficult to gauge due to the number of missing cases in the analysis. Although the results of this relatively small study are inconclusive, there appears to be a potentially interesting interaction between the visual and aural learning modes. This may be attributed to the presentation modes of the treatments.
