Abstract: The objective of this study was to measure the effects of using two-stage exams (TS-E) on students’ learning in a teaching thinking techniques course offered by the College of Education, Kuwait University. In a two-stage exam, students complete an exam paper individually first, then collaboratively in small groups. To conduct this study, a quasiexperimental pretest/posttest control group design was used. A pretest was administered before the implementation of TS-E on the study participants. During treatment, students were divided into two groups, each consisting of 24 students. The control group was tested using an individual format while the experimental group was tested in two stages. In the first stage, students completed the exam using a traditional format, followed by the second stage in which they worked collaboratively in small groups to solve the exam again. After one week, participants from both groups completed the posttest to assess their learning. The data were analyzed using statistical equations, the use of independent t-test and dependent (paired-samples) t-test. The results of this research showed that there were statistically significant differences in the average scores of students in the post-test between the two groups in favor of the experimental group. The results of the research were discussed in the light of the previous literature and several recommendations were made.
