Assessment of small-Group Process

Question: What is the ideal group process and what is a problem with group work?

Answer/Quote: “In the best cases, groups present a respectable product and all group members gain significant learning from the experience. However, in other cases, group members who didn’t pull their weight may have received the same grade as the members who took more responsibility for the task.” P. 42.

Comment: The author suggests rubrics to help students evaluate the group process and urges teachers to have students evaluate the group experience. RayS.
