Group Formation on Physics Exams
written by Steven F. Wolf, Cody Blakeney, and Hunter G. Close
As our classrooms become more active and collaborative, we need to consider ways that our assessments can take on the same active and collaborative spirit that our classes have. One way that we can accomplish this goal is through the use of group exams. In exams at Texas State University and East Carolina University, we have utilized a two-phase exam format allowing open collaboration--that is, allowing students to form their own groups. We have analyzed self-reported collaboration data and find that the room influences how students will associate with each other. We have also compared collaboration patterns evident in student responses for students in open collaboration settings to students in closed collaboration settings.
