In this study, dysfunctional cooperative learning teams are identified by comparing the Taguchi “larger-thebetter”
quality index for the academic achievement of students in a cooperative learning condition with that of
students in an individualistic learning condition. In performing the experiments, 42 sophomore mechanical
engineering students are randomly assigned to the two learning conditions and are formed into mixed-ability
three-member groups. The probability of erroneously identifying a functional team as dysfunctional is quantified
using a control chart. The identification results are verified by examining the smaller-the-better and larger-thebetter
Taguchi quality indexes for the students’ off-task behavior frequency and attitudes toward cooperative
learning, respectively. The methodology and findings presented in this study provide a useful basis for the
development of technology-assisted solutions for monitoring and analyzing the performance of cooperative
learning teams.
