I compared the academic achievement of students in a biodiversity class before and after I used cooperative learning techniques. Student achievement by nonscience majors before using cooperative learning averaged 66.1% or a class grade of D+. For nonscience students in the classes after I began using cooperative learning techniques, the class average was 77.2% or a class grade of C+. Students who took the class after I began using cooperative learning expressed satisfaction with working in a group but found it challenging to schedule time to work in a group outside of class. Cooperative learning is a well-researched technique that helped improve student achievement in the class.
