Grading Cooperative Projects.
Smith, Karl A.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n74 p59-67 Sum 1998
College faculty can minimize problems in grading students' cooperative projects by carefully structuring the five basic elements of formal cooperative learning groups: positive interdependence; individual and group accountability; face-to-face promotive interaction; teamwork skills; and group processing. There must also be sufficient reason for the group approach, time to accomplish the assignment, and necessary student skills and experience. (MSE)
