Abstract

Kolb's (1985) Learning Style Inventory and theories of learning preferences have stimulated much research and theory construction. A number of researchers have argued that, as students move through their college careers, their learning styles are likely to change significantly. This paper reports on the completion of a three-year study to assess the actual extent of change that occurred in a sample of college students. Our results offer mixed support for the proposition that students' learning styles change during the college experience.
