I am looking for research on cooperative learning, specifically showing improvement in student learning. I know there is a lot out there, including what is on Kagan's website. However, I need the actual research, not just the summary. This is for an article review for a stat class. I've searched ebscohost but am finding it hard, as a lot of "cooperative learning" research is actually group work. Help please.

Look on Dr. Kagan's list of sources after his articles. Original citations can be found there. In addition, there are citations after each chapter in Dr. Kagan's Cooperative Learning book. Check out the chapter on research/positive outcomes.
