Cooperative groups work to make each member a more successful student.

Compelling research conclusively proves that group learning increases students’ academic and social skills. Many teachers use cooperative groups in their classrooms, but they can be extremely difficult to implement and even harder to assess.

Assessing Students in Groups explains how to form productive groups and assess individual student performance in group work. David W. Johnson and Roger T. Johnson, prominent experts in cooperative learning, provide many practical resources that teachers can put to immediate use, including scoring sheets, observation forms, learning contracts, classroom activities, and questionnaires. Key concepts are clearly defined in each chapter and a comprehensive glossary is included.

This user-friendly and insightful guide includes chapters on:
  • When and where to use groups
  • Making groups productive
  • Developing an assessment plan for groups
  • Assessing performances of individual group members
  • Self-assessment in groups
  • Peer assessment in groups

Designed for teachers, principals, and staff developers, Assessing Students in Groups is also an essential resource for district and state-level administrators and pre-service teachers.
