This study aimed to examine the effect of Kolb's learning styles on chemical learning activities and achievement of reaction rate taught by inductive guided inquiry learning. The population was eleventh grade Science students of a senior secondary school having relatively good academic input based on national testing results in Bali, Indonesia. Samples involved the entire students of five classes taken by cluster sampling from the whole nine classes of the population. Data were collected by Kolb's learning style inventory for the learning styles, observation and document recording for learning performances, post-test for the cognitive achievement, and questionnaires for student's perceptions. Data analyses were conducted qualitatively in assigning the learning styles, and describing learning performances and perceptions, and used ANOVA followed by Scheffé's post hoc test for the effect of learning styles on the cognitive achievement. The results showed: (1) the student learning styles were 35.8% Convergers, 30.0% Assimilators, 17.5% Divergers, and 16.7% Accommodators; (2) learning styles significantly affected the achievement with only superiority of the Convergers over the accommodators; and (3) the inductive guided-inquiry learning of chemical topic which involves concrete evidences via laboratory work was fruitful for all learners of all learning styles.
