Abstract

Contemporary entrepreneurship education (EE) is often based around a team-based challenge such as creating a new venture or solving a startup problem. A creative and professional solution to such a challenge requires individual and team efforts. At the level of the individual student, self-regulated learning (SRL) is proposed as an effective way to learn in entrepreneurial projects. At the level of a student team, team learning and psychological safety are hypothesized to contribute to group performance. Yet, there is little evidence to support these claims. I seek to add to the literature by demonstrating the effects of SRL, team learning, and psychological safety on various assessment types in the context of an entrepreneurship class. Data is collected from 194 students in 41 groups. Analysis is performed with hierarchical linear modeling. The results suggest that SRL is positively related to assessments at the individual level. Team learning and psychological safety are positively related to assessments at the group level. The results inform educators, students, and entrepreneurs about effective learning strategies
