Collaborative Test Taking with Adult Learners
Dallmer, Denise
Adult Learning, v15 n3-4 p4-7 Sum-Fall 2004
Cooperative learning is a teaching technique that many teachers of all levels use in their classrooms. Putting students in structured groups so that they may work together has become a popular teaching strategy. Cooperative learning is student-centered teaching that requires the teacher to be facilitator and where students learn from each other. However, there is limited research about the benefits of cooperative "test taking" for college students in which students are allowed to work on their tests together. This article explains and describes the use of cooperative test taking in the college setting, specifically in a graduate class.
