Journal of Educational Research, v95 n3 p161-66 Jan-Feb 2002
Examined the effects of positive interdependence versus no interdependence on college students' academic achievement. Students took weekly electronic quizzes where they could interact with groupmates in a chat room. Achievement was measured via biweekly examinations. Students in the positive interdependence condition engaged in significantly more interaction and more promotive interaction during the quizzes and achieved higher scores on the examination. (SM)
