Abstract: The positive benefits of collaborative and cooperative learning are well documented in educational literature and research. In this paper, we present GroupWork - a group-based assessment tool within TeachBack, and an evaluation of our experience in using it as part of an interactive flipped classroom. GroupWork was used to facilitate real-time group-based formative assessment and other problem-based activities in the classroom. Specifically, we examine the short-term and long-term impact of this implementation on students’ learning outcomes and experiences compared to performing formative assessments where students work individually. Results show significant performance improvement for each student and for each assessment question when students are allowed to discuss their solutions with peers. The formative assessment grades after collaborative problem solving are shown to have a strong correlation with final course grades, suggesting that collaborative problem solving may have a lasting benefit.
