The Influence of Learning Style on Students' Concentration


Research between learning styles and learning concentration is rarely done. Learning styles are related to how students can be comfortable with a learning method, so learning styles can be a good indication of influencing learning concentration. This study aims to determine the influence of the three learning styles on learning concentration. The study uses a non-experimental quantitative method with a correlational design. The subjects of this study were 202 undergraduate students. The sampling technique used is convenience sampling. This research uses the Indonesian language learning style scale and the Indonesian language learning concentration scale. The hypothesis testing method used in this research is a multiple regression test. The results of this study found that the three learning styles did not have a significant effect on learning concentration.
