Learning Styles and General Attitudes toward Computers: An Analysis of Students Enrolled in Computer Science Modules at Calvin College. Research Field Study.
Miller, Pamela
This study examined the relationship between the learning style profile of students enrolled in the service module courses offered by the Computer Science department at Calvin College (Michigan) and their general attitudes toward computers. Data were gathered using the VARK (Visual, Aural, Read/write, and Kinesthetic) learning style inventory and the General Attitudes Toward Computers questionnaire. Results are reported for each of the following research questions: (1) What is the learning style profile of students who enrolled in service module courses? (2) How do students who enrolled in service module courses feel about computers? (3) What is the relationship between learning styles and attitudes toward computers? and (4) What is the relationship between selected academic (year in school, major) and demographic (age, gender) variables and attitudes toward computers? Recommendations for future studies are included. (Contains 30 references.) (MES)
