Abstract


This study aimed to recognize the differences in multiple intelligences among the students of Jordan University of Science and Technology with its relationship to gender, academic year, and achievement. The study sample consisted of 349 male and female participants. It used a descriptive analysis, the MacKenzie scale for multiple intelligences, which consisted of 9 dimensions and 10 paragraphs per dimension. According to its findings, the average range for all domains of multiple intelligences was 3.70. This value implied that the average students’ responses were accepted. It showed there was not any statistically significant differences at ∝≥0.05 in the students’ results which could be attributed to gender and academic year.
