Graded Team Assignments in MOOCs: Effects of Team Composition and Further Factors on Team Dropout Rates and Performance

Staubitz, Thomas; Meinel, Christoph in Proceedings of the Sixth (2019) ACM Conference on Learning @ Scale Seite 5:1--5:10 . New York, NY, USA , ACM , 2019 .

The ability to work in teams is an important skill in today's work environments. In MOOCs, however, team work, team tasks, and graded team-based assignments play only a marginal role. To close this gap, we have been exploring ways to integrate graded team-based assignments in MOOCs. Some goals of our work are to determine simple criteria to match teams in a volatile environment and to enable a frictionless online collaboration for the participants within our MOOC platform. The high dropout rates in MOOCs pose particular challenges for team work in this context. By now, we have conducted 15 MOOCs containing graded team-based assignments in a variety of topics. The paper at hand presents a study that aims to establish a solid understanding of the participants in the team tasks. Furthermore, we attempt to determine which team compositions are particularly successful. Finally, we examine how several modifications to our platform's collaborative toolset have affected the dropout rates and performance of the teams.
