This research paper presents an investigation into the relationship between learning style preferences and spatial ability levels of students within construction related majors in engineering and technology. This study used a quantitative approach of data collection, with the instruments for data collection being the Purdue Spatial Visualization test (PSVT) and the Felder-Soloman Index of Learning Styles (ILS). The relationship between the identified learning styles of the participants and their visualization skills was explored, in order to better understand if higher/lower spatial abilities had any correlation with an individual’s learning style preference.
