    I've been working on some undergrad and graduate work recently. It's
    very popular to have students work in groups. Problem based learning
    and all that. Is there a generally accepted unrev-ish response to the
    common complaint with such situations: the above average or more
    motivated students get held back by the common denominator leading to
    mediocore output?

    I assume this is an issue in any environment where augmented
    collaboration is desired but I haven't found any resources which
    address it. Are there any?
