Today's learners face a changing, complex and globally competitive world. They must be able to creatively collaborate and problem solve.
VIEW: An Assessment of Problem Solving StyleSM can help:
Provide a safer environment where students know and accept that differences are not deficits.
Using VIEW has provided my students many Aha! moments ... For my students it has helped them understand themselves much better and helped them appreciate their classmates and co-workers as well as their instructor! And, for me, as their instructor, I have a much clearer picture of each student and their approach to the course.

Create curricula and instruction that allows all styles to participate in learning and growth.
“I have used VIEW with over 300 students preparing for teaching careers in the past three years. My own and my students' experience with VIEW has helped my student teachers gain insights into their own classroom teaching and management styles. I believe that VIEW has helped my student teachers become more sensitive to student learning style differences and better able to adapt a variety of instructional methods to meet student needs.”

Foster stronger leadership skills through greater personal understanding in conjunction with understanding that diversity can be an asset to a team not a detriment.
“VIEW has made a real difference in our work with school administrators, in that it provided a mechanism for us to encourage and help them (1) to think about, examine, and refine their own problem-solving styles, (2) to respect diversity, different points of view, and other ways of doing things, (3) to seek out and hire individuals from divergent backgrounds who bring ‘something new to the party,’ and (4) to work collaboratively with their teams to improve the tone, establish a climate for innovation, and create creative environments creatively in their schools.”

Develop self-aware, student teams that are proven to be more effective and competitively successful.
“My students appreciated learning more about how they best problem solve and how differences can be assets when problem solving. It really helped them to develop empathy toward each other’s differences, especially when working in group activities. ”
