  15. 15. Excerpts from the Vark Questionnaire
  16. 16. Group/Collaborative Work Results: To date 10 interviews have been conducted with Latinos who are U.S. born. Learning style inventory: All rated high on active learning. Vark: Many had high rankings for multiple modalities. Interesting in that in the interviews they commented that it depended on the material for whether or not they wanted the instructions in front of them, or if they preferred the information be verbal.
