Different Learning Styles: Visual vs. Non-Visual Learners Mean Raw Scores in the Vocabulary, Comprehension, Mathematical Computation, and Mathematical Concepts.
Roark, Marvin Brent
This study attempted to show that students that are classified as visual learners will score higher on standardized tests than those students that are classified as non-visual learners because visual learners possess the traits needed to do well on standardized tests. The study used (33) visual and (33) non-visual adult learners in the adult basic educational program at Putnamville Correctional Facility as the sample group. The Vocational Learning Styles Inventory, Piney Mountain Press, Inc., was used to determine the learning style of each student in the study. The Test for Adult Basic Education (T.A.B.E.) was the standardized test administered. The mean scores were taken from both groups in the areas of vocabulary, comprehension, math concepts, and math computation. The mean scores from each group were compared using a computer program which calculated an independent two tailed t-test score for each area. Standard deviation, t-values, and significance was calculated for each area tested. The visual learners group had higher mean scores than the non-visual learners group in all areas assessed.
