A Meta-Analysis of Scripted Cooperative Learning.
Howard, Bruce C.
The usefulness of the Cognitive Engagement in Cooperative Learning (CECL) model for evaluating the learning outcomes associated with various cooperative learning activities is explored. The instructions that a set of learners is given, however broad or specific, is called a script. These scripts are associated with different learning outcomes according to the amount of engagement that learners have with the material to be learned. The CECL model allows the placement of a given script along a continuum for the purpose of predicting how well students will learn the new material. This investigation was a pilot attempt to use meta-analysis to validate the model. Thirteen studies from the last 15 years were chosen. The investigation shows that meta-analysis justifies the use of the model fairly well, but is very much affected by choice and interpretation of studies included in the analysis.
