Learning Styles and Academic Achievement of Student in the Quantum Physics Classes

  • Rif’ati Dina Handayani University of Jember, Indonesia


Quantum physics is the branch of physics that uses quantum theory to describe and predict the properties of a physical system. A student’s first course in quantum physics can be quite difficult to understand some properties of the concepts. The aims of this research are to analyze the physics student learning styles in the quantum physics lectures, and find the correlation between student learning styles and student academic. Data were collected through Learning Styles Questionnaires (LSQ), midterm exam, observation, interviews. The result shows that the sequence learning style in the quantum physics classes is pragmatic, reflector, activists, and theorist learners. There is no significant relation between learning styles with academic achievement in the quantum physics classes
