Abstract

This study investigates the factors that influence the students’ performance in the first computer programming course taught using the blended learning approach.  A blended learning model proposed by Hadjerrouit was adapted, which consists of conceptualization, construction, and dialogue phases. The objective of this study is to identify which phase in the adapted blended learning model has an influence on the performance of the students.  A cross-sectional population study with simple random sampling was conducted at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).  Stepwise multiple linear regression revealed that only the construction phase of the blended learning model was significant towards students’ performance.
