SANTOYO TELLES, Felipe; RANGEL ROMERO, Miguel Ángel  and  ECHERRI GARCES, Danny. Characterization of the Relationship Styles of the Teaching-Learning in the Statistics, in Regards of a Study in Mexico. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.15, pp.799-816. ISSN 2007-7467.

This study assumes as a starting point the need to explore the teaching-learning process in the statistics course, which is part of most educational programs in Mexico. The analysis is based on Sternberg 's theory of mental self-government, with the intention of understanding the relationship between learning style and teaching style of eleven higher education programs in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. The purpose of the study is to identify in terms of trends the teaching/learning styles that characterize the studied educational context.

For this, a survey was applied to a total of eight teachers and 159 students. As fundamental findings, it is stated that the style with the highest frequency registered was executive and judicial for students and teachers respectively, without finding differences between genders (p < 0.005). Differences were found in the grading averages issued by teachers with legislative style (evaluates with higher grades) than teachers with executive or judicial styles. Contrary to what was pointed out by several authors, the coincidences of styles between students and teachers (Judicial styles) generated the lowest yields (grades averages) (p < 0.005).

Keywords : teaching of statistics; learning styles; teaching styles.
