√únal, Menderes
Educational Research and Reviews, v10 n15 p2076-2083 Aug 2015
This study investigated learning modalities of undergraduate students in terms of their gender, departments, grades and academic achievements. The modalities/styles (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic) indicate learning preferences and help students find ways to study effectively, reach new information and solve problems. The study was conducted with a sample group of randomly chosen 249 undergraduate students from different departments at Ahi Evran University, Turkey in the year 2013-2014. In order to gather the data, "BIG-16, Learning Modality Inventory", developed by Simsek, was conducted. The internal reliability coefficient (Cronbach Alpha) of the inventory was calculated as 0.846. At the end of the study it was found that female students preferred more visual and auditory learning than male ones and that there was no significant difference among students in terms of departments and grades. It was also concluded that the use of learning modalities led students to be more successful at school.
