Abstract

This study compared the effects of grouping students with different levels of persistence on their ability to learn in cooperative learning groups while working at the computer. A total of 138 sixth grade students were classified as high, average, or low in terms of persistence and assigned to dyads. Students completed a workshop on small-group interaction methods, a computer-based tutorial, a posttest, and a survey. Results indicated that average persisters interacted more than either high or low persisters. Promotive verbal interaction correlated positively with achievement, and grouping increased partner liking. The implications for forming effective cooperative learning groups is discussed.
