All of the basic principles of assessment that apply to individual work apply to group work as well. Assessing group work has added clearety and trasperancy of the , however.
First, Depending on the objectives of the assignment, both process and product-related skills must be assessed.
Second, Group performance must be translated into individual grades – which raises issues of fairness and equity. Complicating both these issues is the fact that neither group processes nor individual contribution are necessarily apparent in the final product. Thus, the instructor needs to find ways of obtaining that information.
The following general principles should be adapted to the context of specific courses.
Assess process, not just product.
If both product and process are important to you, both should be reflected in students’ grades – although the weight you accord each will depend on your learning objectives for the course.
Ideally, your grading criteria should be communicated to students via a rubric. This is especially important if you are emphasizing skills that students are not used to being evaluated on (such as the ability to cooperate, meet deadlines, etc.)
GK Foundation is guided by an experienced and knowledgeable senior management, who combine entrepreneurial as well as corporate experience and lead the way for all assessment activities.
