This website should be used in conjunction with the study of Bales SYMLOG character types for group involvement. The theory helps members to analyze the make up of the group by looking at individual group members and their typical contributions to the structure and content of the aggregate. If the class is studying this theory, the webpage can be used to illustrate what constitutes a group and then importance of this type of assessment for group development.

The website is easy to use with clear directions. The students can learn about the theory as they take the surveys. After each is taken, the results are summarized in graph form. This can allow the instructor to explain the importance of visual representations of assesment and evaluation results.
