Bu çalışmada akran öğrenme yaklaşımının 9. sınıf öğrencilerinin ısı ve sıcaklık ünitesindeki başarıları üzerine etkisi, öğrencilerin uygulama hakkındaki görüşleri ile birlikte araştırılmaktadır. Çalışma, iki deney (N=56) ve iki kontrol (N=53) grubu ile bir devlet okulunda gerçekleştirilmiştir. Veri toplama araçları “Isı ve Sıcaklık Başarı Testi” ve “Öz ve Grup Değerlendirme Anketi”dir. Çalışma yöntemi olarak yarı deneysel desen kullanılmıştır. Öğrenci başarısındaki değişim iki yönlü (faktörlü) varyans analizi (ANOVA) ile verilmiştir. Anket sonuçları ise nitel olarak ana temalar ve kodlar oluşturularak analiz edilmiştir. Çalışma sonuçlarına göre, akran öğrenme yaklaşımı uygulanan gruplar lehine öğrenci başarısı bakımından anlamlı bir fark ortaya çıkmıştır. Ek olarak, öğrenciler akran öğrenme uygulamasına yönelik olumlu görüşler sunmuşlardır. 

In this study, the effect of peer learning approach on the 9th grade students’ achievement in the heat and temperature unit is investigated together with students’ opinions about the implementation. The study was conducted in a state school with two experimental (N=56) and two control groups (N=53). The data collection tools were the “Heat and Temperature Achievement Test”, and the “Self and Group Assessment Questionnaire”. Quasi-experimental design was utilized as the research method. The change in students’ achievement was presented with the two-factor variance analysis (ANOVA). The questionnaire findings were analysed qualitatively by forming main themes and codes. According to the findings obtained in the research, a significant difference is observed in favour of the experimental groups taught with peer learning approach in terms of student achievement. In addition, the students expressed positive opinions about the peer learning implementation.
