Effects of Learning Style Awareness
Nelson and colleagues (1993) examined the effects
of a learning style intervention with more than 1,000 college students.
This investigation revealed significantly higher grade-point-averages
and improved attitudes for students made aware of their
learning style preferences and then provided
with suggestions for accommodating those
preferences when studying and completing assignments. The findings
of Cook (1989) and Nelson et al. (1993)were corroborated by
Lenehan et al. (1994) who also reported significant increases in
grade-point-averages and improved attitudes for students who
had been provided homework/study prescriptions based on
their individual learning style preferences.
