Abstract Title

Russell, B. (1984). The measurement of the perceptual learning styles of federal aviation administration supervisors (Doctoral dissertation, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK, 1984). Dissertation Abstracts International, 45(09A), 2784.


The purpose of this study was to gather data on the learning styles of FAA supervisory students attending courses at the Management Training School. The Multi-Modal Paired Associates Learning Test (MMPALT II) and the Perceptual Modality Preference Survey (PMPS) were the instruments used to gather the data. The data gathered in this study could be used by the FAA supervisors to gain an understanding of their personal learning styles. The MTS Superintendent, Training Managers, and Course Developers could find the information useful in planning, developing, and evaluating course offerings for the adult learners.
