SUAZO GALDAMES, Iván Claudio. Learning Styles and its Correlation from Academic Performance on Human Normal Anatomy. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2007, vol.25, n.2, pp. 367-373. ISSN 0717-9502. doi: 10.4067/S0717-95022007000200022.
The styles of learning are described as a set of cognitive, affective and physiological features that serve as relatively stable indicators, of how the individuals perceive, they interact and they respond in the atmospheres of learning, these are considered to be like factors that influence the academic performance. The intention of this work was to determine the existing correlation between the styles of learning and the academic performance obtained by the students in the Normal Human Anatomy course. To a sample of 82 students from kinersiologia and fonoaudiologia of Talca's University that they dealed normal anatomy the year 2003 there was applied the questionnaire of styles of Honey-Alonso's learning (CHAEA). The values obtained from the questionnaire were correlated by the yields obtained by these students in normal anatomy. The styles of learning were distributed in a uniform way for four described styles, significant relations not being obtained between these and the values of academic performance
