Students' Learning Style Preferences and Teachers' Instructional Strategies: Correlations between Matched Styles and Academic Achievement
Wilson, Mary
SRATE Journal, v22 n1 p36-44 Fall-Win 2012
The purpose of the current study was to identify the extent to which learning styles influence the educational process as well as the outcome of elementary-age students in terms of academic achievement. This study examined potential relationships between the degree of match (as determined by comparing learning style preferences of students with instructional strategies of teachers) and the academic achievement of fourth grade students as shown by Palmetto Assessment of State Standards scores in the academic content areas of English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The results of this study demonstrate a lack of significant correlation between variables.
