The aim of this study is to rigorously analyze the data obtained through the application of a questionnaire to high school students, for identifying their preferred learning styles in physical discipline.
Quantitative analysis of the questionnaire's results were performed by introducing a mathematical model.This model defines the measurable parameters and equations of invariance which introduces these parameters to check. Theoretical analysis of the conditions to increase efficiency and introducing learning assessment matrix theoretical study completes the picture.
The idea that was started is that, by addressing educational methods to be in close contact with the student's own style of learning, it can have an optimal efficiency of learning. Thus, when teaching strategies meet their learning styles and needs of the student increases the likelihood that it will develop operational competent.
Due to the large number of items, the questionnaire can be applied on small samples of students, findings obtained in this case is but the assumptions.
On teaching methods and strategies that the teacher decides to follow, the feedback obtained from interpretation of the results is twofold: diagnosis and regulator.
The data obtained are useful both for identifying the student's educational profile and to identify the educational profile of the sample analyzed.
Also present research study on the dynamics of learning effectiveness by analyzing data obtained from the target groups of students. Thus, for some samples of students, the results demonstrate that differential treatment of students in the learning process is imperative. Individual typologies multitude of students is an additional argument for diversification of learning methods and strategies. We consider that assessment of student learning styles is one of the starting points for identifying skills and multiple intelligences of students.
Assessment method has the advantage of learning styles is independent of the nature of the discipline that a practice teacher in a school.
It is anticipated that the method of analysis suggested by this study may represent a useful in practice teaching.
