Collaborative problem solving (CPS) assessment is a new academic research field with a number of educational implications. In 2015, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) assessed CPS with a computer-simulated human-agent (H-A) approach that claimed to measure 12 individual CPS skills for the first time. After reviewing the approach, we conceptually embedded a computer-based collaborative behavior assessment (COLBAS) into the overarching PISA 2015 CPS approach. COLBAS is an H-A CPS assessment instrument that can be used to measure certain aspects of CPS. In addition, we applied a model-based cluster analysis to the embedded COLBAS aspects. The analysis revealed three types of student collaborator profiles that differed in cognitive performance and motivation: (a) passive low-performing (non-)collaborators, (b) active high-performing collaborators, and (c) compensating collaborators.
