Revisiting Adults' Perceptual Learning Style and Their Educational Level: A Replication Study
Koch, Kourtland R.
Journal of Adult Education, v33 n2 p6-23 Fall 2004
This study is a replication of an original study conducted by James and Blank (1991) which examined the relationship between educational attainment and adult performance using the Multi-Modal Paired Associates Learning Test-Revised (MMPALT-II) (Cherry, 1981). The MMPALT-II was designed to measure an individual's demonstrated perceptual modality preferences. This study provides further evidence that a relationship exists among MMPALT-II subtests scores and educational attainment. However, the findings do not support the James and Blank (1991) conclusions that MMPALT-II results could be used for educational program planning, counseling, and instruction. This study concludes that the reliability and validity of MMPALT-II to measure perceptual modalities of individuals remains suspect. Further study is recommended concerning the redesign of the MMPALT-II. (Contains 5 tables.)
