This research aims to compare grade 9 students’ research characteristics implemented a learning model of research-based learning integrated with cognitive training and a regular learning model as research skills, research behaviors, and research ethics. The research employed a randomized two-group pretest-posttest design with 95 of grade 9 students, first semester, the academic year of 2019, Phayamengrai School, Phaya Mengrai District, Chiang Rai. The cluster random sampling was used to divide the population into two groups; 32 students were an experimental group, and 30 students were a control group. Research tools were two teaching models; a learning model of research-based learning integrated with cognitive training and a 5E learning model. Research data collection tools were a research characteristics self-assessment, a research skill test, and a research ethics assessment. The data analysis uses One Way MANOVA. The findings were that the developed model is more effective than the regular model in enhancing research characteristics. On the other hand, the experimental group had a higher average score on research behaviors, research skills, and research ethics than the control group.
