Paragon Learning Style Inventory (PLSI) Complete – Interactive Contents

The digital files included here are interactive and contains all the directions and materials needed to assess a group of adults or students and interpret their scores. They contain a variety of resources and exercises and that should provide a facilitator a wide range of uses, applications and sources of information. This page is the Index/Home.
