ABSTRACT

This study is designed to evaluate the difference between the first year and the sixth year of medical faculty in Baskent University (n = 115) by using the Turkish version of the VARK questionnaire. In this survey, VARK questionnaire, which determines a person’s sensory modality by describing visual, aural, read/write, and kinesthetic preference, is used. In this study, unimodal model is the most commonly preferred learning model in the first-grade students (75.4%), and aural type is dominant style (31.9%) changing to the multimodal (67.4%) and mostly quad-modal learning style (17.4%) in the sixth-year students. There is no gender difference. Learning preferences can differ among students of different faculties. Awareness on the learning preferences of the students facilitates the learning process of the students, and also simplifies the teaching process of the educator in developing appropriate learning methods.
