The problem is that there are three students in the class that do all of the work, without telling anyone and without asking for any help. Even when others are assigned to do a specific part and we do our assignment, these certain three go and did their own version and not mention it to anyone. So when it comes time to make a presentation to the client suddenly its a competition. Who's are they going to like better? When it should have been a collaboration. It seems as though one side is out to get the other side. Instead of being helpful during a presentation to a client, students ridiculed and belittled it.
And they COMPLAIN about doing so much work. Let us do some then! I've tried to offer help, asked when they will be working on things. I've been told, "Don't worry about it," and "We're in the lab everyday." But they're not in here every day. And they aren't always working on software engineering.
It has divided our class of 13 in half. And everyone's pissed off. We have no communication. This bad. It makes us unprofessional.
