Several schools recognize the advantages of cooperative learning and use it as a strategy to promote school success. Our study focuses on a learning project among students belonging to the same class, presenting its main characteristics, identifying students’ perceptions regarding their participation in the project and its functioning and impact on academic results and on the learning environment. The analysis of the obtained data highlights the sociability, the relational horizontality and the trust between the pairs, and it notes the predominance of the content-based learning and of methodologies that favor memorization and training oriented towards the final evaluation.
