Abstract

Group and team work is an integral part of programme delivery at Abertay. It is however the single are which attracts the most negative comment from student feedback surveys, with students highlighting perceived unfairness in the assessment of coursework. A team of students taken from across the university have developed criteria to evaluate examples of team and group work assessments. They have applied their criteria to a range of different models. Their insight will inform improvements in our practice.
