This study seeks to determine how the synergogy model of group cooperative performance can be most effectively used in the classroom/training environment with respect to task assignments and reward interdependency. Using two principle designs from Mouton and Blake's synergogy model, the findings indicate that when team members are assigned specialized tasks, the most effective reward system is either the group product or group-averaged (dependent and interdependent, respectively) design. When the tasks among team members are not specialized, the most effective reward system is the group product or a dependent reward design.
