Predicting High School Student Use of Learning Strategies: The Role of Preferred Learning Styles and Classroom Climate
Cheema, Jehanzeb; Kitsantas, Anastasia
Educational Psychology, v36 n5 p845-862 2016
This study investigated the predictiveness of preferred learning styles (competitive and cooperative) and classroom climate (teacher support and disciplinary climate) on learning strategy use in mathematics. The student survey part of the Programme for International Student Assessment 2003 comprising of 4633 US observations was used in a weighted ordinary least squares multiple regression framework to predict learning strategy from preferred learning styles and classroom climate while controlling for self-efficacy and demographic variables. The results showed that preferred learning styles were the most important predictors of learning strategies used in mathematics. Educational implications were discussed.
