Schedule an appointment with a Learning Specialist to learn more about how to improve the results of your study efforts. Learn techniques to manage your time and the demands of your classes, ways to get more from your reading, techniques for effective review, and methods of study for specific subjects such as physics, chemistry, philosophy, math, statistics, etc.


Brainstorming new study methods for me to try based on what I already know about myself, testing those different methods out, and deciding which really helped.

The most useful aspect of the ICA was feeling like I had someone who understood and was supportive of me during a time when I lacked that on campus.

Learning Style and Study Skills Assessments


To gain a better understanding of yourself as a learner, it would be helpful to evaluate the way you learn best by completing the most appropriate inventory tool to meet your needs. After completing an inventory, we would encourage you to discuss the results with a Learning Specialist who can help you to use this information to develop an approach that enhances your learning potential.
The following inventories are available in the Learning Assistance Programs office:

  1. The Kolb Learning Style Inventory (LSI) is designed to assess an individual's preferred learning style - how that person deals with ideas and day-to-day situations.
  2. The Barsch Learning Style Inventory evaluates your visual, auditory, and kinesthetic approach to learning to better understand how you process information most effectively.
  3. The Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) asks specific questions about your current learning and study practices and attitudes.If you would like to take the LASSI online, please consult with a Learning Specialist so that we can provide you with the necessary access codes.

There are also several inventories available on our website. Please look under "Resources" in the menu for online learning style inventories. You can complete them and then bring them to an appointment with a Learning Specialist. The Specialist will help you adapt your learning strategies to your strengths.
