AbstractIncludes bibliographical references (leaves 59-61).
This study examines the practical use of student learning inventories in the higher education setting, using Vermunt's (1998) Inventory of Learning Styles in the context of a second year Business Statistics course at the University of Cape Town. The theoretical underpinnings of the inventory, as well as its predictive value, are investigated. This is done through the use of simple, yet effective, statistical techniques, some of which have not yet been attempted on an inventory of this kind. Data were collected through an online course website and student responses to the inventory were analysed along with their final results for the course in question.
