I need help addressing the following 3 parts of my assignment:

I must use at least two resources to explain the importance and value of collecting student data on student readiness, student interest, student learning profiles, and student affect.

In the second part, I must use one of the resources below and assess the learning style of a student or individual I am interested in learning more about. I must analyze the data to determine the primary learning style or multiple intelligence strength of the individual. I need to make sure to identify the resource used, a brief description of the individual assessed and the process of collecting and analyzing the data.
- Learning Styles Online: http://learning-styles-online.com/
- Learning Style Inventory: http://www.personal.psu.edu/bxb11/LSI/LSI.htm
- What are my Learning Strengths?: http://www.ldrc.ca/projects/miinventory/mitest.html

In part 3, I must discuss the results of the inventory and possible ways to address the individual's needs in a classroom. I need to provide several ideas for differentiating instruction and teaching to this individual's strengths.

In the assignment, I need to include introductory and concluding paragraphs and support my writing with two additional scholarly sources in addition to the textbook.

Interest by students in a particular subject matter can be measured by various characteristics identified as important to learning that induces their disposition positively to facilitate their inner desire for achievement, increases their confidence, steers control of their studies, and positively affects their perception of the particular benefits associated with the subject they are learning. Self-efficacy is high on the list of determining student's interest because it is key for knowledge retention and the transfer of learning. Self-efficacy is the key to the student believing in their own capabilities to accomplish the tasks at hand (Payne et al. 2008).

To determine the readiness of a student YOU can use the Self-Directed Learning Readiness Scale (SDLRS)to measure a student's interest in learning in general. This scale measures the students' love of learning, their self-efficacy, creativity, view of ...
