The source data was obtained through the scientific journal database google scholar, ScienceDirect, Wiley and ERIC. The inclusion criteria in this meta-analysis are that the research must be an experimental method; research comes from SINTA or Scopus indexed journals; Research must be relevant to the discovery learning model in higher education; Journals must be open access and have complete data to calculate the effect size. The results of this study concluded that the Discovery learning model had a significant impact applied to universities with an effect size value of 1,062; p < 0.001) with very high effect size criteria.
