The Relationship of Learning Style, Aptitude and Instructional Program Variables to Achievement in the Military Training Environment.
Enochs, J. R.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to determine how 16 Navy (self-paced) and 18 Marine Corps (group-paced) Aviation Storekeeper Schools students would perform on the same test, assessing mastery of an identical topic related to the selected variables of learning styles and Armed Service Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test scores. No significant difference was found between the self-paced or group-paced instruction. Pretest scores indicated that students knew very little information regarding the learning tasks prior to instruction. Those who scored higher on the ASVAB test preferred learning styles utilizing independent work and direct experience in learning. The better achievers also did not need as much specific information on assignments and also did not prefer to work with things. Data in this research study do indicate that students who enjoy learning independently tend to achieve better, which would be expected in classes taught by self-paced methods. (PN)
