This paper describes the rationale for conducting a study presently in progress, which involves community college students enrolled in online courses. The study methodology, proposed data analyses, and expected outcomes are discussed. The study aims to reveal variables, such as learning-style and linguistic preferences, that may be related to academic and attitudinal outcomes in online courses. Students’ specific learning-style preferences have been found to be related to their attitudes in online graduate education courses (Cicco, 2007). The present study investigates the relationship among learning-style preferences and attitudes toward online instruction in American community college students. The study results may produce information that is useful for students, instructors, and advisors during the course selection process, when online courses are an option (Cicco, 2007; McArthur, 2005). The study conclusions may facilitate the improvement of online instructional methods by encouraging use of practices that deliberately meet students’ learning needs and preferences.
