AbstractThis study attempts to investigate the agility of male and female senior high EFL students of SMA Negeri 4 Pematangsiantar in online learning during the Covid-19 pandemic. The study employs the theory of learning agility introduced by Gravett and Caldwell (2016). As they stated, there are four dimensions of learning agility, namely; mental agility, people agility, results agility and change agility. The sampling technique used was random sampling. 150 students of X PMIA 1, 2, 3 and X PIS 1 and 2 were selected as the participants. The score of male students for all types of learning agility was 6798. While, the score of female students for all types of learning agility was 6831. From 150 participants, the percentage of male students who had high level of agility was in 27,33%, while the female students was in 26%. As for the percentage of male students who had moderate level of agility was in 22,67%, while the female students was in 24%. None of the male and female students had low level of agility. The results showed that when it came to general calculation of score, the female students were higher and more agile. However, when it was seen individually, especially in the learning activities, the male students had higher level of agility rather than the female students.
