Group assessment is a matter assessing the functioning of oneself, others and of the group. Feedback received from others helps the student to know his strength and his development areas, to develop his social skills and his own functioning. Often a member of a peer group is able to give reliable feedback on other members of the group better than the teacher.

In addition to assessing functioning of other members, the team can assess the operation of its team. The functioning of the team can be thought about and assessed using the following themes and questions, for example:

1. Consensus
  • Did the team have common goals??
  • Was the objective clear and did it have the same content for everybody?
  • Were all committed to cooperation?
2. Confidence, care and honesty

  • Did the members of the team trust each other genuinely?
  • How open were the members to each other?
