Our team is conducting a survey about team management. If you could, please fill out the following Google Form:
If you have any questions, comment on this post!
To hopefully clear up some confusion, I will try to answer some questions that have come up.
To measure team member contributions, I mean what they did during a season. Say they worked on the climbing mechanism. Or maybe someone worked on programming the robot. This survey is asking if you feel like it is easy to measure that, or if you even measure it at all. Our team has developed a system that tracks activities that students accomplish. For example, one of our activities is “Helping with the upcoming Car Show”. That activity has 4 points. If someone does that activity that person can log that activity. Once an administrator approves that log, that person has 4 points added to their total. Each activity is also broken down into categories as well. On a stats page, we can see a particular individuals contributions on different areas of the team. There are also priorities you can assign to activities. When a user goes to log an activity, highest priority activities are at the top. There are many other things you can do with activities as well.
This tool is not just a checklist. It can really help teams. Our team has been using this system for a while now, and it has worked incredibly well. Above, I explained an example use of the tool we wish to provide to FRC teams.
