The study is entitled as Use of Experiential Learning on Student’s Performance in Industrial Arts. The research is designed as experimental study and implemented to thirty-five (35) Grade 6 learners of San Antonio Elementary School, District of Bay, and Province of Laguna. The two variables concern in the study is the independent (Experiential Learning) and the dependent (Learner Performance in TLE). Experiential learning is composed of four levels and these are Concrete Experience, Reflective Observation, Abstract Conceptual and Active Experimentation which is the first variable. Meanwhile, the second variable which is Learner’s performance in TLE-Industrial Arts consists of 6 domains and these are Remember, Understand, Apply, Analyze, Evaluate and Create.

Process of conducting the study is through the implementation of experiential learning in face to face TLE – Industrial arts class. Pre-test and post-test serves as a research instrument that administer before and after the implementation of the experiential learning. The test composed of six parts and consisted of questions that are significantly related to the learner’s TLE performance. Each part of the test was composed of five (5) questions and that leads to the total of thirty (30) questions. During implementation, lesson exemplar with the integration of experiential learning is used.

Researcher tallied and tabulated the respondent’s responses. Statistical Concerns were treated through Mean, Standard Deviation and Dependent T-test. Data retrieved was interpreted and came up with the information needed in the study. The study came up with the significant findings. First, the pre-test results showed that scores in Remembering got a result of Very Satisfactory / Proficient which considered as highest result. Meanwhile, Creating got the lowest score and falls Unsatisfactory. Post-test results got positive scores after the program was implemented. As the results are concerned, the study’s null hypothesis is rejected and shows difference between two variables.
