The objectives are as follows:

  • A mixture of qualitative (semi-structured interviews/focus groups) and quantitative (questionnaires) methodologies involving both students and staff in  within the university.
  • explore the use of a novel mathematical model to calculate individual, differential student scores by combining student-generated assessment of the teamwork process with the lecturer-generated product assessment of the entire team
  • Analysis of findings
  • Recommendations/roadmap to inform institutional policy on assessing group work
