The Relationship between Cognitive Style and Communication Style in the Secondary School Context.
Carrell, Lori J.
A study investigated the relationship of communication style and cognitive style in the secondary school context. Eighty-seven secondary teachers from 4 high schools in suburban Denver (Colorado) and 86 of their students completed cognitive and communication style instruments as well as evaluations of one another. Results found: (1) an association between cognitive and communication style for the student sample; (2) a positive correlation between the cognitive style "concrete sequential" for teachers and student evaluation of teachers; (3) a main effect of students' communication style on teacher evaluation of students; and (4) a significant main effect of cognitive style match on student evaluation of teachers. Supplementary analyses revealed a relationship between student evaluation of teacher and teacher evaluation of student. (Contains 98 references.) (Author/SR)
