Funded mini-project: An investigation into the learning styles of the University of Southampton Medical School entrants and outcomes of their first year Primary BM exams. Final report. Southampton, UK, University of Southampton, 7pp.
The learning experience is a phenomenon that has sought much interest and
investigation, in particular the ability to categorise learners according to their
learning style preference. This project set out to investigate relationships
between learning styles on entrance to medical school, the learning style of
‘reflector’ (40.37%) being dominant. There is also a correlation between
previous institution and learning style, with sixth form students having a higher
percentage of ‘activists’. Over 50% of students changed their learning style
over the year, with activists becoming the dominant group. Finally, theorists
achieved higher results in the end of year exam.
