Educators are increasingly pressed to deal effectively and efficiently with multiple criteria evaluation in a variety of circumstances as students become more actively involved in assessment. This paper demonstrates that a "fuzzy set" collaborative assessment approach implemented with a group support system (GSS) can be successfully applied in university classroom contexts. Student learning was significantly enhanced, as was satisfaction, when a collaborative assessment approach was taken. This approach has broad-based applicability in dealing with assessment complexity encountered in a wide variety of business and government contexts, as well as educational institutions. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
