The objective of the research is to analyze the impact of cooperative learning on students’ speaking achievement. This research employed a pre-experimental method with a pre-test and post-test one-group design. The population was the third-grade students of SMPN 4 Sungguminasa. It applied a purposive technique with a total of 40 students. The research data was col-lected by using two kinds of instruments, namely a speaking test and a questionnaire. The data were then subjected to descriptive and inferential statistical analysis, namely the t-test at the 0.5 significance level, degree of freedom (df)=n-l, and the percentage. The result of the calculation of the students’ scores from the test supplied indicated that there is a significant difference between the students’ mean score of speaking achievement on the pre-test and the students’ mean score of speaking achievement post-test. It is evidently that the Null Hypothesis is rejected. However, the Alternative Hypothesis is accepted. Where the t-test value is greater than the t-table value at the 0.5 significance level, degree of freedom (df)=n-l. the analysis of the questionnaire indicates that the students have a positive attitude toward the cooperative learning method. The result of the research showed that: (1) cooperative learning could improve the students’ speaking achievement and (2) the stu-dents have a positive attitude toward the cooperative learning method.
