Curt Dommeyer (Business Administration and Economics) will be working on two projects. In his first project, he will conduct a survey of business students and executives to determine their knowledge of the various aspects of business etiquette.
His second project will investigate whether a new method for grading group projects, the Segment Manager Approach (SMA), will deter social loafing on the group project. With the SMA, each group member is assigned primary responsibility for several segments of the group project. Each member’s grade on the project will then be largely determined by how well his or her assigned segments are executed.
