Abstract—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 learning programming.

Index Terms—Brunei darussalam, computer programming, kolb learning style, technical institutions.
