Avoiding the Group-Grades Trap.
Kagan, Spencer
Learning, v24 n4 p56-58 Jan-Feb 1996
Examines the negative consequences of group grades in cooperative learning situations: they are unfair; they make report cards less meaningful; they undermine motivation; they convey the wrong message; they violate individual accountability; and they create parental resistance to cooperative learning. Alternative ideas for rewarding group efforts and developing social skills are offered. (SM)
