Abstract

The VARK model (visual, aural, read/write, and kinesthetic) is one of the tools to identify learning styles. This study presents the results of student performance in a Systems Analysis and Development undergraduate course after the application of the VARK questionnaire. The class was divided: half would respond to the questionnaire and perform activities tailored to their learning profile while the other half would only perform a standardized activity. In the end, everyone should answer the same three questions in order to analyze the impact of personalized learning. It was possible to see that students who performed the activity in a personalized way obtained better income than those who did not respond to the questionnaire. So, it is possible to realize that the VARK model is effective, and it is a good practice to be used in classroom because it makes the students learn better since they will perform an activity that matches their profile learning.
