Statistical Analysis of the Dunn and Dunn Learning Style with Adult Populations: What We Discovered About How Adults Learn

This study is a quantitative synthesis of correlational research focused on the Dunn and Dunn Learning-Style Model, concerned with adult populations. A total of 8,661 participants from the 47 original investigations provided 386 individual effect sizes for this meta-analysis.
