A number of research studies indicate that understanding and accommodating multiple intelligences (MI) of the students can be an advantageous factor to successful learning. Following the identification of multiple intelligences profile of the individual student within the group using MI inventory survey, the study will examine the group’s performance on three different assigned tasks on TEFL. The first task is about creating learning activities from the group’s video selection, the second task is about a group reflection on one web-based EFL materials and the third task is about the group’s reflection on video viewing. Six groups of equal number of students with diverse range of intelligence profile are going to be taken as sample. Data will be analyzed using descriptive statistic to see the group performance, while Kruskal-Wallis will be used to determine the significant level among the group’s performances.

Keywords: Multiple Intelligences, Group Performance, TEFL.
