Which features do students emphasize when they describe constructive and destructive group work? This was the research question of the present study. Data was collected through focus group interviews with students from three different schools. The results reveal that the students consider six preconditions of importance for their conception of group work; organisation, mode of working, task, report, assessment and the role of the teacher. To sum up, what the students ask for is participation, quality and relevance (PQR).
