To find out the normality of data distribution, the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was utilized, with the criteria of distributed data perceived as normal if the significance value is greater than 0.05. The normality test shows that the data are normally distributed. The homogeneity test of variance between groups used the Levene's Test of Equality of Error Variances. The students' problem-solving ability is found to be increased based on the average pretest score of 59.66 and the average posttest score of 82.41. The hypothesis test was done by using the t-test, and the results indicate that implementation of Teams Games Tournament method has a significant influence on the problem-solving ability of the Introduction to Accounting 1 students.
