The Relationship between Cognitive Style and Three Types of Academic Achievement.
Congero, William J.
Many kinds of individual differences among learners have been studied by psychologists and educators in an attempt to improve the educational process. Some emphasis has been placed on the notion of cognitive style in an effort to understand more of the cognitive processes which underlie academic performance. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship between cognitive style, defined in terms of educational set, and achievement in elementary statistics at the college level. The results suggested that style attributes do account for a significant proportion of the variance in achievement in elementary statistics. (Author)
