Construction Science and Management (CSM) students at Clemson University took a self-assessment survey to determine their preferred learning style to determine if their preferred learning style is correlated to their GPA. Also, both CSM students and instructors took a survey on course methodology to determine if their perceptions of course methodology were congruent. The results of these surveys and subsequent analyses were insignificant, and because of their insignificance, they did not factor into best practice recommendations for online course design and delivery for construction management. The greatest contributing factors for best practices in online course delivery in construction management came from prior research in cognitive load theory, the community of inquiry framework, and universal design for learning.
