LSA-Swift Complete


About LSA Swift

We recommend this product to be used for students age 15 - 18. (Senior High)

How is LSA Swift different to LSA Senior?

LSA Swift is an assessment tool based on our LSA Senior product. The questionnaire has been shortened significantly, and the wording of the questions simplified, so that generation Y and Z would find the assessment process more fun and appealing.

The reports students receive when purchasing the LSA Swift are identical to those of the LSA Senior. No information has been removed, and there is still the same summary page, personalized textual explanations, graphs and diagrams.

Four reports are available:

  • LSA Student (addressed to the student who has taken the "test")
  • LSA Parent (addressed to the student's parent or caregiver)
  • LSA Teacher (addressed to the student's teacher)
  • Group Report (useful for the teacher of a whole class or group of students and providing a summary of all the students’ learning needs and non-preferences).


What Parents Get:

The Parent Report contains all the information from the Student Report, plus:

  • The best way to support and communicate with their child.
  • The optimal way to set up the homework environment.
  • Sensitive information such as: gifted student, underachievers, safety on the Internet.
  • How to motivate their child.


What Teachers Get:

The Teacher Report contains all the information from the Student Report, plus:

  • The best way to communicate with the student.
  • The optimal way to set up a learning styles classroom.
  • Information on classroom discipline, preventing absences, classroom management and lesson planning.

For teenagers who are not confident readers, we recommend an adult (a parent, coach or teacher) to sit with the student undergoing the assessment and to read out the questionnaire one question at a time, taking as many breaks as the student needs in order to keep his or her attention on the task. But: without prompting any answers!



What Students Get:

Among other information the Student Report contains the following:

  • The 4 aspects of the learning environment that the student can change to improve academic success.
  • The 3 unique physical requirements needed for the mind to function optimally.
  • The 6 attitudes that can help or hinder learning.
  • How difficult information can be absorbed in the best possible way.
  • The best composition of the study group.
  • The most useful way for the student to receive instructions and information.
  • A personalized study guide when learning something new and/or difficult.

Why Learning Styles are Important

In traditional schools, teachers make use of the blackboard (or the whiteboard). They talk and the children are supposed to sit up straight and listen. Which is a perfectly valid method of teaching a small percentage of students and it works well for all those who absorb information through their eyes and ears, and who concentrate best when sitting up straight.

But what about those who absorb information through their hands and body actions, and who concentrate best in an informal setting? Well, such students become bored and frustrated when they have to sit still and listen for long periods of time. Although intelligent, they don’t perform well in academic subjects. Left without help, they fall behind and over time get used to failure. Their confidence plummets and they start believing that they are “not good” at school work, or “not clever”. They may start misbehaving at school, refuse to do homework or devise ways of not going to school.

Learning styles identify the best way for each individual to learn. They give the student the confidence as well as the tools to become an academic success. Everybody can learn if they are allowed to do it THEIR WAY, have the right mindset and follow a few simple but important learning style guidelines.

Learning does not need to be a chore. True learning is enjoyable and fun. The human brain wants to learn - all you have to do is... let it.
