The samples used in various studies range from school to university levels, vocational stream to non-vocational stream, regular education mode to distance education mode, disadvantaged group to advantaged group and also intellectually gifted group. Similarly, tools of learning styles employed in studies have a variety?Grasha-Riechmann?s Student Learning Style Scales (GRSLSS), David Kolb?s Learning Style Inventory (LSI), Torrance et al. ?Your Styles of Learning and Thinking? (YSOLT), Schmeck et al. ?Inventory of Learning Processes? (ILS), P.C. Sharma?s Hindi Adaptation of Dunn & Dunn?s Learning Style Inventory (LSI) and S.C. Agarwal?s Learning Styles Inventory (LSI).
