Relationship between Learning Styles and Course Completion of an Online Continuing Education Program
Hernandez, Julie D.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to determine if a relationship existed between learning styles and course completion of students in an online continuing education Program. A quantitative analysis was conducted of the learning styles and completion rates of 34 enrollees in the University of California at Davis Winemaking Certification Program. Data were subjected to chi-square statistical analysis to determine significance relative to the research questions. The instrument used was Kolb's Learning Style Inventory (LSI). The failure to detect a relationship between learning styles and course completion in an online winemaking certification program did not invalidate the study. The answers and limitations inherent to the present study will fuel future research in this rapidly expanding domain of education.
