The purpose of this investigation was to assess the effects of two cooperative learning strategies in physical education on academic learning time in physical education (ALT-PE), the percentage of correct trials, the total number of trials and correct trials, and social behavior. Specifically, two cooperative learning strategies, Performer and Coach Earn Rewards (PACER) and Jigsaw II in Physical Education (Jigsaw II-PE), respectively, were implemented in two 6th-grade physical education classes. Eight participants (2 boys and 2 girls in each study) participated. Data for each study were collected for 18 days. An A-B-A-B reversal design was used in each study to assess the effects of PAGER and Jigsaw II-PE, respectively. Interobserver agreement mean in PACER for trials was 91.4% (90.2-92.9%), ALT-PE was 90.7% (85.0-100%), for social behavior 82.4% (74.7-96.1%), and 98.2% (95.0-100%) for social duration. Interobserver agreement mean in Jigsaw II-PE for trials was 92. …
