This research presents an alternative approach for assisting undergraduates to discover their learning strengths and to empower their learning abilities in a collaborative environment. Applying human performance technology (HPT), a tool to estimate human capital by defining the product of time and opportunity in performance, measures 37 undergraduates' competences for learning different software design techniques, especially when assigned to groups. The results indicate that HPT is effective for diagnosing undergraduates' potentials in a group design project context. In addition, it was suggested that the undergraduates should gain empowerment for identifying proper instructional learning needs and working productively in collaborative groups.
