Research concerned with identifying the relationship(s) between academic achievement and individual learning style has provided consistent support for the following:
- Students do learn differently from each other;
- Student performance in different subject areas is related to how individuals do, in fact, learn;
- When students are taught with approaches and resources that complement their unique learning styles, their achievement is significantly increased
In addition to the research documentation substantiating the positive effects that occur when students are taught in ways that are responsive to how they each learn, as evidenced here, widespread practitioner corroboration has been published based on classroom or schoolwide experiences.
This section provides an overview of selected correlational and experimental studies concerned with the identification of students' learning style characteristics with the Learning Style Inventory (LSI).
