Developing a group model for student software engineering teams
Work on developing team models for use in adaptive systems generally and intelligent tutoring systems more specifically has largely focused on the task skills or learning efficacy of teams working on short-term projects in highly-controlled virtual environments. In this work, we report on the development of a balanced team model that takes into account task skills, teamwork behaviours and team workflow that has been empirically evaluated via an uncontrolled real-world long-term pilot study of student software engineering teams. We also discuss the use of the the J4.8 machine learning algorithm with our team model in the construction of a team performance prediction system.
