Psychophysiological Measures of Learning Comfort: Study Groups' Learning Styles and Pulse Changes
Holliday, Tacy L.; Said, Sukhaynah H.
Learning Assistance Review, v13 n1 p7-16 Spr 2008
This study provided empirical support for tutor-led study groups using a physiological measurement and study survey data. The scope of this preliminary study included determining differences in biology and chemistry study group members' (N = 25) regarding learning styles and pulse rate changes. As hypothesized, there was significant evidence that pulse rate decreased during the sessions, suggesting less stress. Significant differences in final and initial pulse rate were found for biology students when their learning style was matched to the style of instruction. The results suggest that gearing instruction styles to students' learning styles may reduce learning stress in some cases. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
