Abstract

Kolb's revised Learning Style Inventory (LSI) was completed by 718 introductory accounting students. Their scores were factor analyzed to assess the construct validity of the LSI instrument. Both 2-factor and 4-factor solutions were examined in order to assess Kolb's two-dimensional learning style and four separate learning abilities, respectively. The results support two bipolar learning dimensions different than those theorized, and only one separate learning ability. Learning dimensions running from Concrete Experience (feeling) to Reflective Observation (watching),and. from Abstract Conceptualization (thinking) to Active Experimentation (doing) were found, along with the distinct construct of Abstract Conceptualization.
