Learning Preferences/Instruction in General Chemistry 

Correlations between students' auditory, visual and tactile-kinesthetic 
learning preferences, traditional and non-traditional course components 
and levels of success in General Chemistry have been assessed.  
Tactile-kinesthetic learners showed greatest perseverance and tendency 
for involvement in the non-traditional course components studied, 
computer-aided instruction and peer-led-team-learning.  Even though 
there were correlations between this involvement and success in the course, 
these students appeared to remain at a disadvantage by the traditional 
measures of written examinations.
