Abstract: Assessing collaborative problem solving (CPS) is an integrated part of the computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). We present some preliminary results from a project developed for assessing the CPS using web-based simulation. In the simulation, two participants collaborate via a chat box to complete a task on volcano science. By comparing the responses from 486 individuals and 278 teams (dyads) recruited from Amazon Mechanical Turk, we found the performance from the teams (dyads) is significantly higher than that from individuals. We also find that the item difficulty in the simulation affects both the processes and outcomes of the collaboration.
