Reviews

“The value of this volume is in the cross-disciplinary snapshot of the research on assessment of collaboration. The editors should be applauded for culling ideas from a variety of disciplines that would otherwise not be cross-referenced. … the references inside this volume would be an ideal starting point for anyone working in either education or IO psychology, but who is new to the assessment of collaboration.” (Tyler H. Matta, Psychometrika, Vol. 83, 2018)

"The ability to understand the states, traits, and habits of individual learners, collaborative groups, or team is a necessary prerequisite to guiding, adapting, and optimizing instructional experiences. The modeling and assessment of learners interacting with peers, human instructors, or computer-based tutors provides a window into the effectiveness of instructional tools and methods that is needed to continuously improve their learning experiences. Any action taken by the tutor/teacher/instructor without knowledge of those being taught is a shot in the dark. We applaud those who dedicate their lives to helping us solve the hard problems that will turn on the light and allow us to easily tailor learning experiences for every person." (Robert Sottilare, Ph.D., US Army Research Laboratory, Adaptive Training Scientist)
