Work Group Performance on Production Operations Management Tasks.
Brauchle, Paul E.; Evans, Richard V., Jr.
Journal of Technology Studies, v24 n2 p15-20 Sum-Fall 1998
A class of 71 industrial technology students was divided into either self-selected (homogeneous) work groups or randomly assigned (heterogeneous) groups. The heterogeneous groups had significantly better peer ratings and adjusted scores on their work tasks, but not better raw scores. Despite evidence of higher achievement in random groups, students continue to prefer self-selection. (SK)
