Abstract

In this chapter, we propose a framework that supports the analysis andassessment of collaborative learning of online groups of students workingon a complex task (software project, or case study) in a real Web-based,distance-learning context. On the one hand, our approach is based onprincipled evaluation criteria that involve and measure a variety ofelements and factors as well as on a combination of a basic qualitativeprocess and a quantitative method that provide a grounded and holisticframework to analyze and assess group and individual performance moreeffectively and objectively. On the other hand, the approach has been fullyimplemented and tested on an asynchronous collaboration platform. All inall, the aim of our work is to provide a better understanding of groupinteraction and determine how to best support the collaborative learningprocess.
