Assessment of Gregorc Style Delineators

Anthony F. Gregorc is a phenomenological researcher who is internationally recognized for his work in learning styles. In 1969, with the introduction of his Energic Model of Styles, researchers were provided with a valuable tool for helping individuals gain a better understanding of Self and others. This work evolved into the Mind Styles Model in 1984. Gregorc Style Delineator is based upon a psychologically-formulated matrix of 40 descriptive words. Gregorc indicates that there are four combinations of the strongest perceptual and ordering ability in each individual: 1. Concrete Sequential (CS) 2. Abstract Random (AR) 3. Abstract Sequential (AS) 4. Concrete Random (CR)

The author has tried to incorporate Gregorc Style Delineator to one of his courses and has obtained feedback data.

In this presentation, he presents an analysis of his data and tries to draw conclusions as to how to improve classroom teaching techniques.
