Tasks suitable for group work

Many tasks lend themselves well to group work. If the aim of the unit of study is linked to a substantial piece of work or the development of teamwork skills, group work assessment tasks are a good choice. Group work activities would be suitable if the task requires:

  • complex problem solving
  • extensive research
  • lengthy deliberations
  • higher order conceptual skills
  • reinforcement of specific behaviours or skills
  • leadership
  • collaboration.
