and solved problems cooperatively. Group members helped one another, shared ideas, and evaluated their work. The project was clearly a group effort. The group members divided tasks, shared the

workload and managed problems cooperatively. The group occasionally helped one another but required teacher assistance to resolve

differences. One or more members feel that they did more than their fair share of the work and/or problems were not managed effectively. The group

required teacher assistance with dividing tasks and resolving differences. Few people contributed their fair share of work. Total
