Assessing group work - an external resource

This external resource from the Centre for the Study of Higher Education, University of Melbourne, gives a useful summary on how to assess group work.

When effective group management processes are employed, clear assessment guidelines are developed and communicated, and valid and fair grading processes are employed, the likelihood of positive learning outcomes and student satisfaction with group activities is significantly increased. Alternatively, if students cannot see the objective of group work, are unsure of what is expected of them, or believe the assessment methods are invalid or simply unfair, the educational benefits are reduced and tensions can emerge.

Please download the resource for full details.
