Abstract: Small group activities are common through education in the face-to-face classroom, virtual classroom, and blended environments as well. Arguments about the necessity for teaching group work skills to students are made in relevant literature. The drawbacks to group work are also viewed in literature reviews. The need for students to review each other at the end of the group work is not consistent, nor is the method for the review. In this study, the author found a statistically significant difference between the responses of students pre- and post-COVID-19 using the same instrument in the same course.
