This study was undertaken to determine if a correlation existed between an individual's learning modality and his proofreading achievement test scores (ITBS) and actual spelling achievement test scores (K-TEA). The subjects were fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students from three self-contained classrooms. The students were given the Swassing-Barbe Modality Index to establish learning modality. It was found that a significant correlation existed between visual learning modality and achievement test scores for the fifth grade students. The research also indicated that students with a dominant learning modality score achieved above the mean more frequently than those without a dominant learning modality.
