The researchers used quantitative research to emphasize objective measurement and descriptive research to describe the characteristics of the population or phenomenon that is being studied. We utilized purposive sampling to gather input and feedback from 50 selected Grade 12 General Academic Strand students. Based on the table, male and female respondents had the weighted means of 4.15 and 4.34, respectively, both of which strongly agreed that cooperative learning can be assessed through activities. Male and female respondents had the weighted means of 4.37 and 4.33, respectively, both of which strongly agreed that research output can be assessed for cooperative learning. Male and female respondents had the overall weighted means of 4.26 and 4.33, respectively, both of which strongly agreed that activities and research output are ways to assess cooperative learning. Based on the findings of the study and conclusion drown, the following guidelines were forwarded.
