TheRole ofRoboticsTeams’CollaborationQualityon TeamPerformance in aRoboticsTournament

  title={TheRole ofRoboticsTeams’CollaborationQualityon TeamPerformance in aRoboticsTournament},
  author={Christian D. Schunn},
Background Working effectively in teams is an important 21st century skill as well as a fundamental component of the ABET professional competencies. However, successful teamwork is challenging, and empirical studies with adolescents concerning how the collaboration quality of team members is related to team performance are limited. Purpose/Hypothesis This study investigated the relationship between team collaboration quality and team performance in a robotics competition using multiple measures…
