Here are some resources for interest surveys, learning styles surveys, multiple intelligences survey, and learning profile inventory.
Interest survey- http://www.union.k12.sc.us/ems/Teachers-Forms--Student%20Interest%20Survey.htm
This survey asks questions about books, life experiences, favorite things, enjoyed pastimes, and relationships with others. The questions asked are thought provoking and must be answered with more than a “yes” or “no”. One thing that I like about this survey in particular is that the instructions state that students can skip an answer if they feel uncomfortable about it.
Learning styles survey- http://www.educationplanner.org/students/self-assessments/learning-styles-quiz.shtml
. The survey of learning is set up much like a survey found on social media. The questions put the test taker in different scenarios. Some are academic; others are not. The fact that the questions are broad helps paint a picture of the whole learner.
Multiple intelligences survey- http://schoolofeducators.com/tag/multiple-intelligence-test-printable
This survey is long, but gives an accurate idea of which intelligence(s) a student has. The survey has 70 questions and can be adapted to fit many grade levels.
Learning profile inventory- http://firstday.wikispaces.com/General
This survey is located half way down the page. It requires students to draw a picture of themselves, list their favorite things, qualities of a good teacher, and basic demographic, and goals. Although this was created by a math teacher, I believe that any middle or high school teach can adapt this survey for their classroom. This would be an excellent activity for the first day of class.
