Abstract—This study aimed to investigate the relation of communication skills and collaborative skills simultaneously on student cognitive learning outcomes using the Digital Mind Maps-Integrated PBL model. This correlational study was conducted on biology education students at Universitas Islam Riau, Indonesia. The research instrument consisted of observation sheets to assess communication and collaboration skills, as well as essay tests to measure cognitive learning outcomes. Data analysis used multiple regression analysis. The results showed a significant relationship between communication skills and collaboration skills on cognitive learning outcomes with F count (13.966) and p-value of 0,000 <α (0.05). Besides, these two variables simultaneously also contributed to the achievement of student learning outcomes with an Effective Contribution (EC) value of 46.61%. Thus it can be concluded that the improvement of communication skills and collaboration skills have a contribution to the learning outcomes obtained by students. Therefore, educators can empower both of these skills so that students' cognitive learning outcomes also improve.
Index Terms—Communication, collaboration skill, cognitive learning outcomes, digital mind maps.
