—This pioneering study investigates the students’
learning style in understanding their performance in computer
programming course where they enroll for their first year of
Bachelor of Internet computing degree program. The data was
collected from cohort of students who appeared for their first
year examination in programming concept module and were
given Kolb inventory of learning style. The result through Chisquare
test confirmed that there existed a relationship between
learning test and students’ performance in programming
module. Moreover, students with converging and assimilating
learning styles are significant and are closely associated with
their pass or credit grade. Based upon the results, some
recommendations were made in order to enhance teaching and
