Assessment of projects with multiple criteria is very common in education and business organizations. This paper reports the use of fuzzy set theory for assessment of students' projects in an education setting. The whole assessment process includes four stages, namely generation of basic assessment criteria, selection of assessment criteria, determination of assessment criteria weights, and fuzzy grading of students' projects. As a result, a group decision support system (GDSS) has been developed and used to support the assessment process. The experimental results with the use of proposed GDSS show that students are encouraged to work collaboratively and they produce better project results.
