Exploring cooperative learning in an initial computer programming course using Visual Basic
"The main purpose of this research was to examine the impact that cooperative techniques and demographics had in a computer programming class. Two instructional styles were compared: a traditional lecture style and a cooperative lecture style. The influence of demographic factors, such as mathematics background, academic experience, gender, grade point average (GPA), and course attendance, was also considered in conjunction with the two lecture styles to gain insight into cooperative learning...Through the experiment and statistical analysis, this study found that cooperation did not improve learning and performance, and might deter students from positive learning experiences"--Abstract, leaf iii.
