Abstract: In order to better understand inequity in small groups, the processes that lead to student status and authority in relation to other group members warrant further study. To describe status changes in authority of students in small groups, this article applies Langer-Osuna’s influence framework (2016) to data of undergraduate students. This analysis found that these components change both longitudinally across days and rapidly within one day. These changes to students’ positions suggest that not all interactions lead to the development of a singular identity (Langer-Osuna, 2018). These findings are consistent with positioning theory, which posits that identity is rapidly in flux as people position and reposition themselves (Davies & Harre, 1999; DeJarnette & Gonzalez, 2015).
