Abstract:

This research aimed at examining: 1) The learning outcomes differences of the physics concept understanding between groups of students who learned through STAD type cooperative learning and expository learning; 2) The learning outcome differences of physics concept understanding among students with different cognitive styles; 3) The learning outcome differences of physics concept application among the students with different cognitive styles; 4) The learning outcome influencesof physics comprehension.
This research used a quasi-experimental research with factorial of non-equivalent control group design, which is implemented in six classes, determined by lottery, such as X4 class, X5 class, X6 class, X7 class, X8 class X9 class at SMAN 22 East Jakarta with 214 students altogether. Three classes were the experimental class and three other class were the control class. Learning outcomes data were collected through pretes and postes and analyzed by using statistical MANCOVA test helped by SPSS 15.
The result showed that : 1) STAD type learning strategy demonstrate learning outcomes of comprehension and application of physics concept better than expository learning strategies; 2) students who have field independent cognitive styles demonstrate learning outcomes of comprehension and application of physics concepts better than students who have a field dependent cognitive style; 3) there is an interaction between learning strategies and cognitive style on learning outcomes of comprehension and application of physics concepts.
Based on the result of this research, it is suggested that: 1) teachers implement STAD type cooperative learning strategies as one of the learning strategies in learning physics; 2) teachers pay attention to students cognitive styles before applying a certain learning strategy.
