The Effects of Cooperative Learning on Student Achievement in a Fourth Grade Classroom.
Kambiss, Patricia A.
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of cooperative learning on spelling achievement in fourth grade. During the 12-week treatment period, students (n=25) in the experimental group were heterogeneously grouped and received instruction by means of cooperative learning techniques. The control group (n=26), which was not grouped in any specific manner, received an equal amount of instruction in spelling using traditional techniques. Both groups received the same assignments and covered the same content. Pretests and posttests were administered. There was a significant difference between the spelling achievement of the two groups of students in favor of the students who worked together cooperatively. (PCB)
