One of the key startup activities in building an effective flipped classroom is thinking through how collaborative groups should be constructed. The CATME project at Purdue has done a great amount of that creative thinking and has developed an automated tool to help ease the process of team formation. While no automated tool is likely to cover all the factors that turn out to be important in a given situation, there is a fair amount of flexibility that a user of CATME can use to tailor the criteria for group formation.
