Jerald C. Moneva, Jeanelyn S. Arnado, Ildebrando N. Buot


Learning styles are the basis on how students learn. There are different learning styles. Three of the most popular ones are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic in which students use to absorb information. On one hand, students’ motivation is an internal drive of the students to do a task on their own will. The study used a univariate likert scale questionnaire among Senior High School Students in Jagobiao National High School to 244 individuals. Questionnaires were sent directly to targeted segment. Firstly, the respondents reported that they absorb information best using hearing aspects known as auditory learners. Secondly, they absorb information by visualizing or the visual learners. Lastly, the respondents describe that they learn through actions or the kinesthetic learners. The finding of the study is not statistically significant between students’ learning styles and self-motivation because the ANOVA presented that the result is greater than the alpha in which the decision is failed to reject and there is no significant association between the two variables students’ learning styles and self-motivation. Majority of the students preferred to listen while learning. It was seen that it is the best way that the students absorb information effectively. It is necessary that the teachers should identify the students learning strategies in order to meet their teaching strategies. The study accentuates that students’ self-motivation does not affect the students’ learning styles.
