The Relationship between Learning Style and Academic Achievement.
Farrell-Moskwa, Claire
A study investigated the correlation between students' learning styles and their academic achievement on report cards and standardized tests. Subjects were 58 fifth-grade students in a suburban middle school. The "Learning Style Inventory" by Brown and Cooper was administered to this population, and students' academic averages and California Achievement Test scores were obtained from their cumulative folders. Results indicated that, overall, there was a negligible relationship between learning style and academic achievement; but that there did seem to be a relationship between certain learning styles and academic performances when they were examined on an individual basis. (Four tables of data are included; 26 references, an appendix of data, and the Learning Style Inventory are attached.) (Author/RS)
