Measure employees' preferred style of learning on a self directed basis
The Learning Style Questionnaire (LSQ) has been used extensively within industry and academia for 35 years, to measure learning preferences in individuals (aged 16+). The LSQ was developed by Peter Honey and Alan Mumford and is based upon David Kolb’s Learning Cycle.
The purpose of the LSQ model is to help stimulate individuals to think about the way they learn from their experiences.
The LSQ is a highly cost effective self-development instrument, which promotes better individual and group understanding by revealing how people prefer to take in information.
Thousands of organisations around the world have benefited from staff completing the LSQ by discovering which style of learning they prefer, then attempting to improve less preferred styles.
There are two versions of the LSQ, the 80-item which is the original questionnaire and 40-Item which was developed in 2000. Both are available online or in print. Use the LSQ to:
