Keywords and Phrases

Kolb's learning theory


"This study examined the relationship among individual differences, learning styles,s course satisfaction, and course performance as a function of course structure. Students enrolled in two sections of Engineering Management 209 were used to complete demographic questionnaires, personality inventories, learning style inventories, and course satisfaction questionnaires in this study. In certain instances, learning style was shown to predict course satisfaction as a function of course structure. Certain individual differences were also shown to predict course satisfaction as a function of course structure. Course performance was also shown to be related to individual differences. While the findings of this study showed potential for support of the hypotheses made, some hypotheses received only moderate to weak support due to lack of statistical power"--Abstract, page iii.
