Assessment in the 2013 curriculum leads more to the assessment of knowledge and attitude. The ability of cooperation is categorized as part of the social skills and attitudes that learners need to develop. One approach to learning that can be used to develop the ability of cooperation is the CTL approach. The CTL approach links material to the real situation of learners and provides an opportunity to work together to solve problems. Android is one form of sophistication of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) which is generally owned by all circles including learners, and can be used as a media of learning. This study aims to measure the students’ cooperation ability during learning using the physics learning toolsof CTL approach assisted android. A type of pre-experimental research was used in this study. 32 students of XI MIA 4 were used as study subjects. The results showed: (1) the physics learning tools that are made feasible to use with the category of validity are very well grounded, (2) the students' cooperation ability is in a very good category after learning to use the CTL approach assisted android.
