Learning Style and Students’ Achievement in Science

Discipline: Education, Science



Educators assert that students have various learning styles. In most cases, what is being taught has less impact on learners’ achievement than the way materials are presented. In other words, learning style makes an important component in the learning environment. The Learning Style Survey Questionnaire employed in this study appears to be a viable tool to determine students’ learning style. This study investigated the learning styles and achievement in science of 288 students. Findings reveal that most of the students were visual learners. Results also show that the students possessed average competencies in science. Furthermore, results suggest that learning style has no significant bearing on achievement in science.
