The purpose of this study was investigating high school students’ learning
styles in order to develop an instrument for academic guidance. The
population of this study consisted of male students in three fields of
science, mathematics, and humanities in high schools of Hamedan. The
sample, consisted of 170 male students in grades 2 and 3 of high school in
the fields of science, mathematics, and humanities. Students were selected
through multistage cluster sampling method. Kolb’s Learning Styles
Inventory was employed to measure the students’ learning styles. The
results of the study showed that most of the students in mathematics and
science had a converging and assimilating learning style, and most of the
humanities students had a diverging and accommodating learning style.
Thus, by awareness of students’ learning styles, we can guide them to the
fields that best fit their learning styles in high school or college.
