Group projects can and be fun, yet very stressful at the same time.  For instance, having to agree upon the decisions you make, knowing that it is going to reflect your grade, and relying on others to do their part correctly can be very stressful during a group project. Also, when doing assignments such as video projects, it is very hard to find time to meet up with other group members and being able to coordinate schedules to complete your project can be very frustrating at times. Group projects are also annoying when you are stuck with people just sit back and enjoy their time while you do all the work. 

When assigned a group project, you are put into a position that requires you to rely on other people to help complete your project. At times, this can be helpful and take some stress off your shoulders, knowing that you have someone there to help you complete your assignment and to do some of the work. However, this can be very scaring knowing that your grade can depend on the quality of your partners work, and that they are also depending on your work as well. 

One of the hardest projects that can be assigned is a video project. Often the actual assignment is not very challenging, it’s just finding the time to film a video and have every group member in the same place at once. Many students have busy schedules and already have a hard-enough time finding time to do homework but having to find a time that matches up with everyone else’s schedule makes things twice as hard. 

By far the most annoying part of group projects is when you have that one kid in your group that decides they don’t feel like participating. When this situation happens, all the weight relies on you to finish the project, while they get to sit back and take the grade for your work. This puts you in a very stressful and frustrated situation.”Partners aren’t always reliable, they don’t communicate very well, and your grade is effected by something you can’t control,” Abby Vanmeter said.
