DISC for Teachers / Homeschooling Parents


Homeschooling parents -- What is your preferred teaching style? How are you perceived by your children when you teach? How can you adapt your teaching style to accomodate your children with different learning styles?  This report answers those questions!

The sample report here is Jeralynne's actual results.  Compare them to our daughter Abigail's results in the Student version below, and you see how Jeralynne needed to teach Abbey differently from her natural teaching style.

DISC for Students*


What is your preferred learning style? How do you want teachers to talk with you? If you're homeschooled, how do you want your parents to teach you? Which study tips work best for your style?

This assessment answers the above questions! BONUS: This report also provides a list of careers that match your specific style!  It's like getting a career-planning assessment included free of charge!

*Students as young as eight can complete the assessment if an adult explains some of the words used while taking the assessment. A junior high student should be able to complete the assessment alone. 


Driving Forces / Learned Motivators*


Eduard Spranger first defined six primary spectra of learned human motivation. 

The Learned Motivators / Driving Forces report expands on Spranger's work, outlining 12 Driving Forces on six spectra: Knowledge, Utility, Surroundings, Others, Power and Methodologies.

If you're wondering why you "click" with some people and not others, this report can tell you why. For families, it's provides a way to "value the differences" in what we value.  For example, if you aren't connecting with a teen, this report may show why!

*Because learned motivators are still forming through the elementary years, this assessment is best administered to ages 13 and above. 


Innate Intellect / Natural Motivators 


Howard Gardiner proposed his theory of Multiple Intelligences in 1983. At Family Experience, we believe his theory helps us determine a person's innate intellect, which also happens to be the person's natural motivators. The reason? If someone has an innate intellect about something --such as nature--, then the person is naturally motivated to learn about and do things in nature. 

Family Experience offers an online assessment ($9.99) to help you measure your innate intellect.  You can also have your children take it, although you many need to sit close by and provide synonyms to help them choose their answers.  When you know YOUR natural motivators AND your child's natural motivators, you can know how to adjust your teaching environment to facilitate a natural motivation to learn!  >>NOTE:  This assessment requires about 10-15 minutes to complete.
