Problem solving ability of higher secondary students in relation to their learning styles
The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between problem solving ability and learning styles. Problem solving is the frame- work or pattern within which creative thinking and reasoning take place. It is the ability to thing and reason on given levels of complicity. People who have learned effective problem solving techniques are able to solve problems and higher levels of complicity than more intelligence people who have no such training. Problem solving is the process of overcoming difficulties that appear to interfere with the attainment of a goal. Simple problems can well be solved by instinctive and habitual behaviors. Learning styles information stand be shared with highlights the importance of learning techniques (rather the teaching process) and it thereby raises questions concerning the ideal distribution of power and control among teachers and learners. This research study is an attempt to study the problem solving ability and the learning styles of higher secondary students. The objective of the study is to find out the level of problem solving ability and their learning style of higher secondary school students. The samples selected for the study are higher secondary school students from different schools in Pondicherry. The sample size 300 was drawn from various schools. The tool used to collect data is Problem solving ability test standardized by L.N. Dubey and Styles of learning and thinking tool standardized by D. Venkatraman. The study shows that Problem solving ability of higher secondary students is average in nature. It was found that problem-solving ability had a positive relationship with learning.
