Group Projects Part 2

 I enjoy doing group projects but I understand my student’s concerns. One of the biggest concerns is that 1-2 students do the entire project for the group and everyone earns the same grade. 

Along with giving roles, I tried a new system for submitting work this semester and it worked really well.  

The first step was to set up individual submission deadlines.  Each student had to submit their work each week.  The students had to submit their work before they could view their peers.  The second step was a group decision deadline.  The students then needed to review everyone’s answer in the group and submit 1 group answer.  

The student’s were graded on their individual response and given feedback. They were then graded on their participation in the group discussion and groups response.
