Team Satisfaction and Student Group Performance: A Cross-Cultural Study
Zeitun, Rami M.; Abdulqader, Khalid Shams; Alshare, Khaled A.
Journal of Education for Business, v88 n5 p286-293 2013
The authors examined the relationship between team satisfaction and students' performance in group projects in two universities, one from the United States and one from Qatar. The results showed that there is a significant positive correlation between team satisfaction and group performance only for the American students. Demographic factors such as gender, employment, course level, course subject, and group gender were partially significant in influencing students' responses. American students performed better than Qatari students, but they were less satisfied with their team members. These differences may be attributed to the cultural dissimilarities between the American and the Qatari students; thus, students' cultural backgrounds should be considered when forming groups.
