Abstract

The paper looks into student achievement based on gender and type of schools. Learning styles and learning strategies were investigated as factors contributing to the differences in academic achievement among boys and girls in single gender and coeducational schools. Learning Styles and Learning Strategy Inventories were distributed to 400 students. Structural Equation Modeling found a good fit between the model with the data of samples. This study also found that academic achievement is directly influenced by learning strategies. The findings of this study provide a new dimension in explaining the growing gender gap in Malaysian educational system.
