The objectives of this research are to investigate: (1) the difference of effect between the application of the cooperative learning model of the STAD type and that of the Team Games Tournament (TGT) on the Accounting learning result; (2) the difference of effect between the students with the high learning interest and those with the low learning interest on the Accounting learning result; and (3) the interaction effect between the application of the learning models and the students' learning interests on the Accounting learning result. This research used the experimental quantitative research method. The population of the research was all of the students in Grade XI of Social Science Program State XXX Senior High School. The samples of the research were taken by using the random sampling technique and consisted of 57 students, 29 students from Grade XI of Social Science Program 1 of the school, and 28 students from Grade XI of Social Science Program 4 of the school. The former applied the cooperative learning model of the STAD type whereas the latter used the cooperative learning model of the TGT type. The data of the research were gathered through questionnaire for the variable of the students' learning interest and test for the variable of the Accounting learning result. The data were analyzed by using the two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). The results of the research are as follows: (1) there is a difference of effect between the students instructed with the cooperative learning model of the STAD type and those instructed with the Team Games Tournament (TGT) on the Accounting learning result as indicated by the value of (Fobs= 18.205 > Ftabel= 4.08 and p = 0.000; p < 0.05), (2) there is a difference of effect between the students with the high learning interest and those with the low learning interest on the Accounting learning result as signified by the value of (Fobs = 151.489 > Ftabel = 4.08 and p = 0.000; p < 0.05), and (3) there is an interaction effect between the application of the learning models and the students' learning interests on the Accounting learning result as shown by the value of (Fobs = 4.201 > Ftabel = 4.08 and p = 0.045; p < 0.05).
