Effects of Informal & Formal Cooperative Learning #777

Findings showed that English scores dropped significantly for the formal cooperative learning (CL) class but were unaffected for the informal CL class. Intrinsic motivation for the informal CL class increased significantly, whereas the formal CL class’ was unaffected. The extent to which students felt their basic psychological needs were met increased for both classes, raising the possibility that intrinsic motivation could be enhanced in the future for the formal CL class as well.
