This study examines business students' attitudes and beliefs about the non-performance benefits of cooperative learning used to address changes in business education (Accounting Education Change Commission, 1990). In doing so, this paper seeks to fill the gap between learning outcomes and the students' perceived value of this learning experience (cottell & Millis, 1992; 1993; Peek, Peek, & Horras, 1994; Peek Winking, & Peek, 1995; Fellers, 1996; Hite. 1996). The remainder of this paper presents a discussion of the background and application of cooperative learning, and describes the research methodology used. The analysis of data and empirical results are presented, followed by a summary and concluding remarks, as well as some limitations of the study.
