Abstract

Background and Purpose:

The nursing research on learning differences is currently expanding, suggesting the need for trustful measurements. This study aimed to adapt and cross-culturally validate the Learning Style Inventory.

Methods:

The first phase involved symmetrical translation and adaptation to the Greek target language. The second phase concerned the psychometric testing.

Results:

Internal reliability showed satisfactory alpha values. Kappa coefficients supported the test-retest reliability, and paired t test correlations justified the stability. Factor analysis yielded 2 constructs fitted with theory. The internal validity was also evidenced. The nursing students’ learning style profile was discussed within their educational field and cultural background.

Conclusions:

The inventory presented content and construct equivalence to original scales. Certain implications were drawn for nursing supporting the utility of learning styles’ measurements.
