Every student has his/her learning styles. Understanding students’ learning styles is an important factor to improve both learning and teaching. Teachers need to identify students’ learning styles to enable them to prepare materials that match their styles of learning. This paper discusses the development of a survey instrument that solicits information on teachers’ observations of their students’ preferences and behaviors in the classrooms to detect students’ learning styles. The instrument solicits observation data from teachers using a survey questionnaire that is developed based on the four layers of Curry’s Onion model. We argue that, in a state where clear detection of learners’ styles is not available, teachers’ observations in the classroom could offer significant contribution to detecting students’ learning styles.


Keywords – Learning style, VARK model, Curry’s onion model, Questionnaires.
