Abstract

There are issues in assessing the contributions of individual students on geographically distributed student teams working on information technology projects. At Pace University we have been using real-world student projects in capstone computing courses for about ten years. While the courses were conducted in a classroom environment during the early years, the current course has been essentially online for the last three years in order to reach a greater number of students. Through peer evaluations and other remote assessment techniques we have found it possible to assess the work of students on distributed teams.
