4MAT Learning Type Measure

If you want to discover your specific approach to learning, we invite you to take the Learning Type Measure. The LTM is a simple and highly effective self assessment tool for profiling how people approach the process of learning.

LTM NEW GRIDThe LTM depicts the degree of preference that people display towards four very different learning orientations:

1. People-oriented. Likes Personal discussion and dialog. Favorite Question: Why?
2. Information-oriented. Likes analysis and research and learning from experts. Favorite Question: What? 
3. Task-oriented. Likes problems and experiments, putting learning to use in the real world. Favorite Question: How
4. Innovation-Oriented. Likes open-ended explorations and creative possibilities. Favorite Question: What If? 

The LTM Graph examines much more than someone’s dominant approach. It’s four quadrant graph reveals the most, second-most and least preferred approach that people have towards learning.

The Learning Type Measure is based on a thoroughly validated and statistically proven  framework (4MAT) for creating high impact teaching and learning. It is rooted in the work of Carl Jung, Kurt Lewin, David Kolb, Jean Claude Piaget, SampleLtmPlotAlfred North Whitehead, and John Dewey.
