Group Projects: More Learning? Less Fair? A Conundrum in Assessing Postgraduate Business Education
Nordberg, Donald
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v33 n5 p481-492 Oct 2008
Group projects form a large and possibly growing component of the work undertaken for assessing students for postgraduate degrees in business. Yet the assessments sources, methods and purposes result in an array of combinations that the literature on assessment fails to capture in its full complexity. This paper builds on a new framework for discussing the assessment of group projects and reports on an exploratory piece of empirical research to examine the questions posed in the title: Is there more learning? The answer is a solid, if less than emphatic yes. Is it less fair? Probably, but what is the alternative? (Contains 2 tables and 5 figures.)
