Abstract or Summary
  • The primary foci of the study were to determine the relationships among perceptual modality, temporality, and academic achievement, and to develop implications for the academic counseling of middle school students based on the findings. The sample was composed of 613 students enrolled in Prineville Junior High School. The Edmonds Learning Style Identification Exercise, the metronome, and the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills were the instruments used to collect data. Five statistical tools were used in the analysis of data. The findings at the .05 level of significance were as follows: 1. There were no significant differences in perceptual modality mean scores for the three temporal groups. 2. There were no significant relationships between sex and temporal grouping (slow, medium, fast). 3. A significant relationship existed between grade level and temporal group. There was a higher concentration of sixth graders in the slow temporal group. 4. There was a significant difference between sex and the perceptual modality score of visualization. Males scored significantly higher. For the other three perceptual modality scores and sex, there was no significant differences. 5. There was no significant difference for grade level and perceptual modality mean scores. 6. There was no interaction for grade level and sex on perceptual modality mean scores. 7. There were no significant relationships among perceptual modality scores within each temporal group. 8. There were no significant relationships among academic achievement scores, preferred temporal pace, and perceptual modality scores. Implications for the academic counseling of middle school students stressed the importance of using visual materials in the curriculum for males, and the varying of instructional pace to accommodate differences in students' temporal paces.
