Description

This study is a quantitative synthesis of correlational research focused on the Dunn and Dunn Learning-Style Model, concerned with adult populations. A total of 8,661 participants from the 47 original investigations provided 386 individual effect sizes for this meta-analysis. The study was conducted in the following manner. The mean effect size was r =.258. This suggested that the learning-style elements had a medium effect on the 30 independent variables explored. The largest effects were on Discipline (r =.363), Achievement (r =.351), Decision-Making Groups (r =.343), Age (r =.326), Ethnicity (r =.311), Right Brain/Left Brain (r =.303), and Gender (r =.288). Six of the 15 independent variables were discovered to have moderated the results. These included the assignment to research sample, demographic region, publication type, school level, type of statistics utilized to calculate effect size, and university. Publication bias was not revealed through correlations of sample sizes and effect sizes. Calculation of a Fail Safe N statistic determined between 1,439 and 1,644 studies supporting the null hypothesis would be necessary to reverse the conclusion that individual's preferred learning-styles were significantly related to the categorical variables examined.
