A study was conducted on the Felder-Soloman Index of Learning StylesÂ© (ILS) to assess reliability, factor structure, and construct validity as well to determine whether changing its dichotomous response scale to a five-option response scale would improve relia- bility and validity. Data collected in this study had internal consis- tency reliability ranging from 0.55 to 0.77 across the four learning style scales of the ILS. Factor analysis revealed that multiple fac- tors were present within three of the learning style scales, which correspond to known aspects of the scale definitions. The factor analysis and direct feedback from students on whether they felt their scores accurately represented their learning preferences pro- vide evidence of construct validity for the ILS. Changing the response scale improved reliability, but it did not change the fac- tor structure substantially nor did it affect the strength of the evi- dence for construct validity based on student feedback.
