This was a study of the preferred learning styles, computer information systems competency, on-screen reading ability, and keyboarding proficiency of students enrolled in basic mathematics classes at a medium-size technical college in Georgia. The study compared these characteristics for successful and unsuccessful students who self-selected one of two course delivery formats, online and face-to-face, for a basic mathematics class. This study included 288 students from the five campuses of a selected college. The measures of the four characteristics were collected for each combination of class format and success outcome. Two-way analyses of variance found that class format and success status relative to the measured characteristics individually did not produce significant results.
