CATME creates an Adjustment Factor for team performance based on team members' CIKEH ratings of a particular member as a proportion of the total average team CIKEH ratings.
The other two CATME factors besides CIKEH (conflict and satisfaction) might also impact Team Contribution.
To evaluate student contributions to teamwork objectively, we examined data from our LMS, student information system, and CATME, a free, online student-evaluation system.
These results do not inspire confidence in the non-CIKEH CATME measures.
In addition to student usage data, GPA, and credits earned, we examined peer evaluations data from CATME.
We found that the only CATME measure that provided us with some insight into projected team scores was Task Conflict.
