A Comparative Study of Traditional and Cooperative Learning on Student Achievement.
Pratt, Sherry J.; Moesner, Cheryl
The purpose of this study was to determine whether cooperative learning would produce higher achievement test scores among low-ability fifth-graders than the traditional mode of instruction. Subjects were students in two low-ability classes, one taught by a teacher who used traditional instruction, and another taught by a teacher who used cooperative learning. Classes were given the California Achievement Test. Total reading, language, mathematics, and battery scores indicated that students in the cooperative learning class scored higher than students in the traditional class. There were statistically significant differences in favor of the cooperative learning class on mathematics and total battery scores. (RH)
