Abstract

In this paper a fuzzy system for automatically assessing the students’ teamwork performance is presented. The main goal of this work is to guarantee an equitable assessment of students’ teamwork throughout the course and across the lecturers of the same subject when subjective criteria are considered. The proposed fuzzy system (i) is designed by using a methodology based on a trade-off between accuracy and intelligibility, and (ii) uses as input linguistic variables a set of four statistical-based parameters, computed from real individual and group marks, which have been subjectively and objectively validated. Finally, the fuzzy system is described and validated experimentally.
