Self-evaluation is an ongoing activity and involves a variety of considerations.
Both the European Language Portfolio, which is a record of second language progress and achievement and the DIALANGself-assessment statements are in accordance with the levels A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languagescreated by the Council of Europe.
The DIALANG self-access statements may be printed out and answered in order to evaluate language levels. While self-explanatory, the responses to the statements may be discussed with instructors at the language centre.
Not all people process and retain information in the same way.
People can learn by seeing or hearing, reflecting or acting, reasoning logically or intuitively, analyzing or visualizing.
All methods are valid if they work. Assessing the characteristics of your own learning style will help you to develop a more efficient approach to learning.

The Index of Learning Styles is an on-line instrument used to assess preferences on four dimensions (active/reflective, sensing/intuitive, visual/verbal, and sequential/global) of a learning style model formulated by Richard M. Felder and Linda K. Silverman.
The instrument was developed by Richard M. Felder and Barbara A. Soloman of North Carolina State University.
