Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v10 n3 p49-67 1999
Examined whether students who studied together outside class did better on exams than those who studied alone, and whether pedagogical method (cooperative/active learning versus lecture) influenced students' out-of-class study behavior. Mean exam scores were generally higher for students who studied in groups, regardless of teaching style, and students in the active-learning class were more likely to study with others. (EV)
