The purpose of this study is to determine the level of Information Technology (IT) knowledge among Physics students in Dhahira District in Oman based on student’s performance in Physics and their learning style which is Multiple Intelligences. A quantitative survey research design was used in this study. The research samples consisted of 344 Physics students from 9 schools in Dhahira District. Data were gathered using two questionnaires: IT questionnaire and Multiple Intelligences survey. Descriptive statistics which are mean and standard deviation indicated that the IT level among students is moderate (mean= 3.95). ANOVA testing revealed that there is a significant difference at α = 0.05 (p= 0.000) in IT knowledge among students from different levels of Physics performance at α= 0.01 (r= 0.480). There is a significant moderate relationship between IT knowledge and Physics performance. Majority of Physics students in the district have a high level of Naturalist, Existential, Kinesthetic, Intrapersonal, and Visual intelligences compared to the other intelligences. For the rest of the intelligences the level is moderate. The study also indicated that most students have a high level of IT knowledge with the high level of multiple intelligences.
