Measuring Collaborative Problem Solving Capability in Creative Problem Solving Situation
Association for Computing Machinery
Collaborative problem solving (CPS) capability has become more important recently since the complexity of the problems we face is often beyond the ability of any one talented individual. The PISA framework of CPS is a widely used tool for measuring CPS capability. However, the PISA framework has limitations in that it can only be applied in a virtual situation and on problems which have a correct answer. This study was conducted to find out a way of measuring CPS capability in real problem solving situations which demand creativity. In order to measure CPS capability, we combined an expert-assessed contribution score and peer-assessed CPS capability score. Results show that the combined score can predict CPS capability well.
