Using Solo to Analyse Group Responses

The increased use of group work in teaching and learning has seen an increased need for knowledge about assessment of group work. This report considers exploratory research where the SOLO Taxonomy, previously used to analyse the quality of individual responses, is applied to group responses. The responses were created as part of an activity dealing with weather data and analysed for the quality of the description of variation. The research indicated that the hierarchy developed for coding the individual responses could also be used to code the group responses. Group responses were generally found to be of poorer quality than was suggested as possible by the responses of individuals within the group. Factors that may have contributed to the differing quality of the group responses are considered. (Contains 2 tables.) [For complete proceedings, see ED489538.]
