Web-based experiments were performed to test the validity of learning styles. The preliminary data indicates that self-reporting of learning styles does correlate with learning in web-based environments designed to favor a particular learning style. However, the learning style instrument tests did not yield results that correlate positively with student learning or with the student's self-reported learning style. These results suggest that student learning can be improved in web-based environments by matching the presentation style to the student's learning style. In courses where materials are presented in multiple styles, students can self-report their learning style and then automatically be given a suggested path through the course materials that best suits their learning style.
