Assigning students to cooperative-learning teams and processing peer evaluations can consume an inordinate amount of a busy faculty member's time. Recently developed software packages with easy-to-use web-interfaces can simplify the effort and produce reliable results. This hands-on workshop engages participants in using an integrated software package for assisting faculty management of student teams. The first system, team-maker, automates the assignment of students to cooperative learning teams. The second system, CATME, manages student peer evaluations. In the workshop, attendees are guided through the tutorials illustrating the features of both systems. Fictitious student data are provided so that attendees can experience the entire process of assigning students to teams and administering and reviewing a peer evaluation. Attendees are expected to bring their own wireless-capable laptop computers.
