In their research, Fallon and Watts (2001) consider how best to make use of portfolios as learning assessment instruments and how they may be of value to education.
In their research paper, Mitchell, Reilly, Solnosky, Bramwell, & Lilly (2004) present evidence that supports the hypothesis that self-selected teams for group assignments effectively decrease the success of the group work. The research considers the effect of self-selected groups as compared to teacher-selected groups, and it compares the effects of such groupings within low achieving [...]
