Online first! Paul Goodman and I have an article forthcoming in the journal ‘Small Group Research’ tackling the sticky issue of measuring group learning.
Goodman, P., & Dabbish, L. (Forthcoming). Methodological issues in measuring group learning. Small Group Research. [Pre-print available for download here]
In the paper we review methodology employed in a selection of previous work on group learning, and consider whether these approaches truly capture learning at the group level of analysis. We provide recommendations for research on learning at the group level.
Thanks to the magic of the internet, you can access our article online first (before it appears in print) at the SGR website here.
