SUBJECT SURVEY STATISTICAL TOOLS OUTPUT . Learning style has an important place in the lives of individuals especially students. Students Electronics Engineering Department have different ways of learning style/s. When a student knows his/her learning style.2 Conceptual Framework of the Figure 3. Knowledge of learning style also provides information to the student as to why s/he has learnt in a different way than others. s/he will integrate it in the process of learning so s/he will learn more easily.2 Research shows the main concept from of TACTILE KINESTHETIC the research.VISUAL AUDITORY Figure 3. fast and will be successful. The researcher conducted a survey to determine each of student learning style/s.

2015-2016: _____________ 2nd Sem GWA S. and Respondents The gathering of data was done last September 2016. With this simple random sampling. The researchers chose the respondents using a simple random sampling.Y. Fold along the dotted line to the right of the page before you answer all options for each question.3 Research Instrument The researchers used a questionnaire that contains a series of questions and other prompts for the purpose of gathering information from respondents. From the questionnaire the researchers used statistical tools to process and compare the data taken from the survey. 3. .

A simple random sample also minimizes bias and simplifies analysis of results. The respondents of the research were sampled from the population of Electronics Engineering Department of the College of Engineering of Technological University of the Philippines (TUP). 3. every member of the larger population has an equal chance of being selected.

The researchers interviewed a total of 50 students from different year level in the university.
