The description of the four types of learner and your result

The learning method in which one has the most percentage points indicates the basic learner type, but since learner types are usually mixed types, the following areas in which one has achieved a higher percentage are not unimportant.

Doing learning: percent

Some pupils prefer to try something out before reading long instructions or having something explained in length and breadth. They also like it when someone shows them something practical and they can try it out for themselves soon afterwards. It is beneficial for such students to be able to relate learning material to their own experiences, to be active with others, for example in games, experiments or group work. They prefer tests and tasks that enable independent learning. It is important for teachers to involve such pupils directly in the learning process in some way, because they quickly become impatient when they cannot move and "do" something. Learning aids for this form of learning are rhythmic movements, joining in and imitating, every form of group activities and topic-specific role plays.

From a parent's perspective, an exercise for motor learners: hands-on stories

Tell or read a story to your child. When a predetermined word is uttered, your child will have to stand up, kneel, or hold up their arms. With this exercise I support the urge to move in my students and at the same time train the ability to listen closely.

The following learning tips may be helpful for this type of learning:

Acoustic learning: percent

These pupils are the ideal case for "normal" lecturing classes, because they learn best when someone explains something to them in words. They then also rely on their ability to listen well while keeping what has been said. It is easy for them to take in, retain and reproduce information they have heard. They are able to follow verbal explanations, often in length, as well. As we know from studies, only very few students can be assigned to this type (well below 10 percent). Discussions and question-and-answer sessions are ideal for their style of learning. It is best for them to keep the learning material when they can talk to someone about the learning material or ask someone questions about it, they like to test each other, some save the learning material on a tape or on the computer, which they then listen to several times. Learning aids are therefore learning cassettes, conversations with other learners, for example in learning groups, lectures, the presentation of material in the form of dialogues and learning materials with music. The auditory learner can easily take in information he has heard, remember it and also reproduce it. He can follow and process verbal explanations. For him, explanations sound right, he can figure them out, they sound correct. The acoustic learner is very good at learning by heart by speaking the text out loud, often also talks to himself while learning, telling others about what he is currently learning.

An exercise for auditory learners from a parent's perspective: The picture dictation

Give your child a blank sheet of paper. It should now draw a picture on this according to your specifications (e.g. draw a sun at the top right! Below is a tree with four apples hanging from it. A child with a basket picks these apples). You can also give your child a coloring page and then dictate what colors to use to paint things.

The following learning tip may be helpful for this type of learning:

Reading learning: percent

For these students, good textbooks with a lot of text are the ideal case because they get their knowledge most easily from written sources. You will be able to understand complex issues simply by reading a detailed description of them. They learn best when they can formulate the subject matter in their own words, work out exam questions in writing or write notes on the computer. To learn texts, they prepare excerpts in which they summarize the content in their own words. For this type of learning, learning aids are the traditional forms of the education system, which is largely literal, i.e. fixed on the passing on of information in the form of letters. Modern forms of this learning are about through Weblogs or learning diaries supported.

The following learning tips may be helpful for this type of learning:

This is particularly recommended with 1500 words Vocabulary posterthat you hang up in a frequently frequented place in the apartment so that it is always visible. This makes it easier to memorize the vocabulary through the repeated observation, which is supported by the optics and the division into meaningful categories.

Pictorial learning: percent

These pupils find their way into new learning material best if it comes along in pictures, overhead transparencies, slides, films or videos. Observing the course of action makes it easy for them to keep track of things. When learning, they illustrate the learning material in the form of overviews, graphics or pictures. Such pupils also like to draw complicated things, whereby they often design them in color. They sometimes decorate their exercise books with sketches and pictures of the fabric. Learning aids are books with sketches, pictures, but also learning posters, videos and flash cards.

An exercise for visual learners from a parent's perspective: What's missing?

Put 5-8 pictures on the table. Your child should now look at them in peace. Then your child walks out the door or turns around. You remove a picture card. Now your child has to guess which picture is missing. I often play this game in English class when the children have learned new vocabulary. Through this exercise, the vocabulary is consolidated in a playful way.

The following learning tips may be helpful for this type of learning:


Comparison with others

Below you will find the data from a sample of over one thousand five hundred people who, like you, took the test and with whom you can now compare your learning and work preferences. To do this, you have to go to the graphic on the right (you can see this on the Form page print out your test values ​​(the black digits on the left side from 8 to 41).

The blue numbers mark on the left and right edge Percentagesthat always include areas colored differently from light yellow to dark red from bottom to top 10 percent of the samplewho, with their preferences, are exactly in this area.

The black border lines mark the transition to the next 10 percent group. So 50 percent of people lie up to the 50% line, and the other 50 percent above that.

From this graph you can see exactly how many people have more or less preferences for a learning activity than you. If you agree with your values in the upper darker areas then your preference for this type of work is strong or very strong. Are your values in the two areas around the mean around, then you have a balanced work profile. If your values ​​are lower, then you tend to like these forms of work less.

An exampleYou can find out how to evaluate and interpret your test by clicking on the graphic on the right!

With the HALB test you have found out which form of learning you prefer or use more often than others. However, one should be aware of this don't expect too much, because when you are learning you often have only a few options to choose the form of the presentation. If your learning material comes in a dry book with a lot of text and you prefer colorful pictures and drawings, then you will hardly be able to change that - perhaps by translating the material into pictures or thinking of your own experiences. We have some of ours for you for every type of learner Learning tips that are typical of this preferred type of learning.

Our special tip: It should all be in a study area a low percentage have to try out exactly these learning and working methods! Because maybe that was exactly what they were missing in learning so far!

Fortunately are very few people can be clearly assigned to a learner type, but as you can probably see from your HALB test result, there are no pure types, but all people only have a more or less clearly defined order or mixture of their learning preferences.

The learning material itself has a much stronger influence on learning, because you can hardly learn a language from a textbook alone, but you have to speak it and connect your thoughts with things you have seen. Also, you can only keep the content of a film or play over a longer period of time if you have written down a few key words or are discussing them with someone.

Regardless of which one Basic learner type has emerged for you, you should try to include as many channels as possible in your learning process. Because as we said in an earlier learning tip ("K'ung-fu-tzu's cool guys"), we can best acquire a learning material the more diverse we choose the possibilities of remembering and retaining, because the chance of remembering something increases with the number of sensory channels involved.

Before we forget: Correctly spelled the word in question 2 is of course "parallel", which you probably already knew.

For those particularly interested

The HALB test or the learning type concept from a scientific point of view: The HALB test In addition theResults from over 500 people who have already taken the test or the most important scientific data about the test from over 1500 participants from 2003 and over 18000 from 2004.
