    Abstract

    In software and IT systems engineering, personal characteristics are expected to impact performance and attitude. To clarify the optimal composition in a team of students in academic education, we researched the relationship between student personality characteristics and learning effectiveness of teams using the Five Factor and Stress theory (FFS). The results taken from a Project-based Learning (PBL) course at Waseda University showed that educational effectiveness is highest when a team consists of management and anchor types without leadership types. In addition to FFS, we are currently adopting the Five Factor Model (FFM), which is a well-accepted personal characteristic model, to dig deeper the relationship in different courses on IT systems and software development conducted at various universities. Preliminary results show that although individual characteristics are not strongly correlated to learning effectiveness, there are a few strong team correlations. As our future work, we plan to acquire more data and investigate relationship between FFS measurements and FFM ones in terms of learning effectiveness.
