Abstract Title: Student Attitudes on Group Exams in STEM Courses
Abstract: Administering group examinations is a teaching technique which has been gaining traction in recent years, and many faculty implement and assess group exams in different ways.  It is not well-understood how students react to each of these faculty choices.  Moreover, we want to uncover how students believe group exams affect them, aside from receiving a better grade.  To accomplish this we have developed a semi-structured interview protocol, and are interviewing students who have taken group exams with different STEM faculty.  We will present preliminary findings from these interviews.
