I received a data request and have looked around trying to find something publicly available but haven’t found anything.
The student is looking for:
"So my project is looking to determine the teaching style of a lesson, matched to the Felder-Silverman learning styles dimensions, although I could change learning style measurement systems if it is necessary,, in order to supply students with the lesson in the manner most conducive to their learning. So I am essentially looking for a data set which contains the students learning style and some measure of how successful in a given learning environment, I was thinking grades in the class would be ideal but if there exists some other measure in a data set that would work."
A dataset with Learning Style and student grade/success score
Maybe someone on the listserv has seen something similar?
That is going to be really hard to find. The student may have to look to journals. YOur institution however may have an EDC - Education Development Centre, or the institution that provide faculty with teaching and learning, and they may be able to better point the student toward resources and potentially data.
I checked with our Instructional Design Librarian and she is of the opinion that this will be pretty much impossible to find. As [noted previously], she suggested that there might be some articles/studies, but that the data themselves would probably not be available due to confidentiality, vulnerable population, etc.
