    Default Group projects?

    In work, school, uni, whatever. What do you think of them?

    Personally, I don't like them at all. Since I usually get good grades (cept in things like math, but I've never had a math group project), teachers pair me up with people who tend to be failing so they can "even out" the grades... then the failing people leech off of me and I have to do all of the work or risk failing. ^;__;^ I usually end up posting a note to the teacher that the other person did nothing, but the other person still shares my grade most of the time. *sigh*

    Feel free to post your horror stories of group projects, or fun group project assignments you've had.

    I love them. It means I don't have to do any work because my group will all do it.

    The last time that I was involved with a group project, I did all of the work. It was my decision though. I didn't trust the other members of my group to do quality work. They probably thought it was really cool of me when really I just thought they were dumb. lol

    They suck. You either have to take bad grades because your group mates are imbeciles, or have to do two-three times the work to get decent grades. Neither prospect is appealing.

    Group projects are fun if everyone involved really participates. But if they don't then that means more work for you as you try to pick up the slack to make up for everybody. That would mean doing the work of five people and the worst part is that they get the same grade for the work you did.

    The only time I would really enjoy the idea of a group project is if it's something for the arts. Other than that I'd rather do my stuff alone.

    They're okey. Sometimes, could be really fun.
    But, I usually only use it for an excuse x.x (home group projects)
    I'm used to woking on my own. But, I'd like it better if my members are students that actually pay attention to class, and does something. (but sometimes, that person who doesn't do anything could be me x_x ...well, they don't let me do anything, so, I just go to a dark side, and do nothin)

    I only like them if the people in my group are of equal or greater intelligence than me. That sounded really cold. I didn't mean it to be like that. Whoops.

    I never did like group projects, but I hate projects on your own. I'm just too lazy to do anything, but group projects are not that bad compared to a project on your own.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    I prefer to be alone, because then I call the shots, I don't want anyone trying to fly my plane.

    I just do a better job without anyone else. Unless, its like my best friend, then its twice as good.

    I hate group projects of any kind, aside from the fact that I work better on my own I don't like working with groups because there is always that ONE person that is so stubborn and won't do any work because they can't be in the same group as their friends.

    Here, here. I hate it when there's that one person who doesn't do anything and they end up getting the same grade as you.

    Like, for my engineering class, we were put into groups for the duration of the class and there's this one kid who's a total slacker. He missed two classes, which is terrible, and for our presentation that we had to give on a power source, he did no work. The rest of us spent over a week working on it and took the time to get together to finish it. He didn't even try to comprehend wht we were doing. He asked the day of the presentation what the presentation was about and what he had to do! I was considering taking his name off the powerpoint.

    And he had the gall to say "Maybe I should start coming to class." I wanted to beat his head in. What really frustrated me was that each member had to present at least two slides so it made it look like he did work! But he got his because we each had to submit an individual assessment for each member and did not want to protect him or lighten the truth.

    I don't like working in groups because I feel like I can do the job better working alone. However, I have to learn how to work in a group because it's a necessity for my major. Groups just annoy me.

    I've never once had a good experience with group projects.
    My nightmare with group projects began when I was 9-10 and was given a partner halfway into my science project. The other girl basically trashed my project and nearly killed my grade...not to mention losing any chance I had in the competition.
    Rather than lose my grades, I learned to shoulder the entire workload for any and all group projects until university. As to why my bad experiences ended there, I didn't work on any group projects while at uni. Thank heavens!
    The only thing I learned from this is that I hate it!! The groups are never made up of people who put in equal effort. There is always at least one person who refuses to do any work whatsoever, typically the person failing class anyway. I learned to hate people by all these failed experiments.
    Thankfully for everyone, I have moved past my hate. Or have I?

    It pretty much depends on who I am with. Current group project in health isn't going too well because we aren't allowed to pick partners. I have 3 guys in my group (me being the only girl) and so they pretty much dump all the work on me. One of them has 2 broken arms, one sleeps in health b/c its 1st period, and the other is just there.
    Group project in science, we get to pick partners, which always works out for me because then the work is divided.

    I like peaceful and calm atmosphere. I can be pressured if I have to work in a group. I'm okay with group projects but there's always a 'defect' person in my group that'll refuse to contribute to anything. It's just unfair to give that person an equal mark when all she did was sit back and enjoy the view (of us working) without giving opinions and initiatives to help with the materials needed. ;_;

    I despise group projects. Not to take this superior ground on anyone, but I almost always end up hounding people to do the tiniest bit of work. I end up with classmates that couldn't care less about their grades, but usually take advantage of the fact that I do. It's very annoying.

    I don't even bother going to the teacher since it does little to resolve the problem. A bit of a lecture and it's back to square one.

    Studying in groups on the other hand, is awesome. Being able to choose people to actually learn and bounce ideas with is great. I could only dream that group projects were more like that..

    I suppose I've been lucky, the groups I've been a part of have been really good. Usually we have to put together some sort of poster and then give a speech so we'd split the group into poster makers and speech givers, everyone attempts an answer to the question given, and the group leader collates the answers together. It's been a good system so far.

    What's the pattern? Those who like group projects are the lazy bums. Not surprising.

    It's actually alright for me about group projects. But that is if everyone in the group helps and contributes to the project. I did experience a time where I was the only one thinking and doing it.
    I remember we have a group project where we need to draw our reflection about a particular poem. They were happy I was in their group, and ask me to draw. I was getting tired, so I asked them to help and they were all saying, "Sorry, i don't know how to draw." I was so annoyed and shouted out that they managed to go to highschool and yet they didn't know how to draw. In the end.. I finished drawing MY reflection about it, and just let them color and explain it in the presentation.
    It really depends in who are you with and how you handle the group. >_<

    I personally dislike group projects, for much the same reasons that everybody else here has stated are their own reasons for disliking them. But alas, I understand the necessity they have in the real world.

    Most projects or any major task executed in most work environments are group focused, therefore, we are usually stuck dealing with a group. I guess it is better getting used to the ‘fun’ of working with a group of imbeciles in a low stakes environment where at worst you will get a bad grade rather than said imbeciles costing you’re your job.

    Now THAT would be much more unfortunate.

    Hum hum, yes, it seems like most of the people on here are the responsible type. I suppose for those of us who tend to do well group projects are a real hazard.

    meh, I have a group oral exam coming up next week in Japanese class, and I got paired up with the class idiot. I don't trust him to put together a coherent sentence in Japanese, even one as simple as "I eat." We do get to read from a script in hiragana, but half the class still can't read hiragana, so I doubt he will be able to, and the script is two pages long. I have half a mind to do what my friend suggested and re-write the whole thing for him in romaji. ^-__-^;;

    Like some people in this thread, I prefer to do things on my own, or with a friend I know I can trust to do their part, but for some unknown reason this semester my class is full of morons and the teacher assigned our groups. I just hope the other person in our group isn't as stupid as this guy... I don't know her so I have no idea. Seriously, this guy is sooooo... ugh. For example, the teacher explained "For sen (1,000) you don't have to put ichi sen (one one-thousand), but for man (10,000) you have to put ichi man (one ten-thousand)." And then right after she finished that sentance, this guy asks: "So for man you put ichi and for sen you don't? Is that right, or...?" I wanted to stand up and throw something at his head because he obviously hadn't been paying attention. He always has some excuse: "Oh, I had an orgo test," "Oh, my brain is fried," "Oh, I was studying all week" (obviously not for Japanese...), "Oh, I'm sick today so if I say something wrong..." ^-__-^ I can't stand this guy... I can only hope he gets hit by a car or something before we have to present and then we won't be able to do our project.

    I like group projects when the work is well distributed and you don't end up with a bunch of lazy bums, sometimes I end up doing all the work myself, I only remember one time I had 3 projects at the same time that I slacked off one of them and left the other team member to do it.

    Groups usually slow my work down. And usually if I work in a group, I end as a tyrant telling everybody else what to do.
