Efficacy of cooperative learning model ‘make a match’ among pharmacy students
Learning innovations to improve the understanding of a concept and learning outcomes of students are required. One of which is the cooperative learning model ‘make a match’. This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of applying the ‘make a match’ model on the learning outcomes of pharmacy students. This study is a quasi-experimental study with a one-group pretest-posttest design. The research subjects consist of all pharmacy students in 6th semester in 2015. The efficacy of the application of the ‘make a match’ method was assessed in terms of the increase in learning outcomes. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics including paired t-test. The average score of the students after being taught using ‘make a match’ was higher (68.10 ± 17.40) than that using conventional one (58.36 ± 22.91), (p< 0.05). The application of the ‘make a match’ model could stimulate active participation of students during learning processes and could improve the learning outcomes of pharmacy students, especially in the Clinical Pharmacology course.
