Learning Style and Plausible Reasoning.
Vos, Kenneth E.
The relationship of particular learning styles and plausible reasoning ability of 110 subjects from 6th, 7th, and 8th grade was examined. Data were compiled on a plausible reasoning test and on a Learning Style Inventory with four subscales: (1) Concrete Experience (CE), (2) Reflective Observation (RO), (3) Abstract Conceptualization (AC), and (4) Active Experimentation (AE). The 7th- and 8th-grade subjects had a significantly higher mean score in plausible reasoning than 6th-grade subjects. A strong positive relationship for female subjects and a strong negative relationship for male subjects existed between CE learning style and plausible reasoning ability. A strong positive relationship existed for male subjects between AE learning style and plausible reasoning ability. (Author/MN)
