ABSTRACT

This study deals with the comparison of ranking of various languages and subjects as given by students with learning difficulty.  The students with learning difficulty were instructed to rank order their liking for, both, his/her favorite teacher/s as well as the languages and subjects in their school curriculum. A total of 32 students (27 boys; 5 girls) with learning difficulty answered a structured questionnaire during clinical interview. The data was subjected to both descriptive and inferential statistics (Cramer’s V). Results revealed that in the case of languages, the pattern of ranking was similar for both students and teachers. However, their ranking of subjects revealed a similar trend, the pattern of ranking was found to be similar for both students and teachers.  Implications of the study are delineated.
