Evaluation of Learning Styles among Undergraduate Students at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst completing selected Online and Traditional Courses

Abstract
This study evaluated the learning styles of undergraduate students completing selected online and traditional courses relating to food, nutrition, or exercise at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Data was collected from 93 students across five courses offered at the University of Massachusetts between Fall 2003 and Spring 2007. Results showed that all four Kolb learning styles were present in both the online and traditional classes. Although not significant assimilators were the most dominant learning style in the online classes and convergers were the most dominant learning style in the traditional classes. Matching a students learning style to an instructors training style had no effect on knowledge, attitude, behavior or satisfaction outcomes, however course format did have an impact on these outcome measures.
