Description: Anecdotal evidence from students shows that ACU undergraduates have difficulty managing their time due to various commitments and responsibility outside university. As such, this paper proposes a cooperative learning model which endeavors to help students utilize their time optimally in a first year programming course in MATLAB. Included in this model is a structured assessment framework, as well as teamwork training to facilitate effective teamwork strategy.
This model also places emphasis on strong alignment of curriculum objectives to progressive assessment tasks. To deploy this framework, a MATLAB programming project is designed to be just large enough for a group of 3 students to finish in one semester. To solve the problem of slow start with poor planning, the project is divided into six tasks; the first two are to initiate students individually
into the project, as teams are to be formed only during the fourth week of semester. The remaining tasks are for when teams are formed. It is expected that by the time the teams are formed, each student is already familiar with the project and this is shown via continuous online discussions as well as written reports. Students who contribute more towards the project, evidenced by online discussions as well as CATME student peer evaluation results, are given bonus marks. It is anticipated that this framework can change the high achievers perception of teamwork; in normal teamwork environment, these high achievers feel that the poorer students
waste their time. Also, the less talented students can be encouraged to participate strongly in the project, thus eliminating a significant number of passengers.
