Honey and Mumford Learning Style Questionnaire: What kind of learner are you?

This resource is provided for educational use only, and is the work of Peter Honey.

This questionnaire is designed to find out your preferred learning style(s). Over the years you have probably developed learning habits that 'help' you benefit more from some experiences than from others. Since you are probably unaware of this, this questionnaire will help you to pinpoint your learning preferences so that you are in a better position to select learning experiences that suit your style.

The assessment involves simply ticking boxes next to statements you agree with. Learning theories will then help you identify which learning styles and techniques will be most useful to you. It is a model of learning theories developmed by researchers Peter Honey and Alan Mumford who identified four distinct learning styles: Activist, Theorist; Pragmatist and Reflector.

Once your learning style has been identified, you can use it to help you understand what kind of learning process will likely be most beneficial to your growth.

There is no time limit to this Honey and Mumford free online assessment. It will probably take you 10-15 minutes. The accuracy of the results depends on how honest you can be. There is no right or wrong answer.

If you can agree more than disagree with a statement check the box.
