This study recognises the role of collaborative problem solving (CPS) as an important 21st century skill for a higher quality workforce. This study aims to develop performance measures of individuals CPS ability while being engaged in collaborative problem solving tasks online with another human (H2H). With this aim in mind, the authors propose a new CPS Process Framework. The proposed framework portrays CPS as a consolidation of collaboration and problem solving frames. Indicators of observable behaviours are designed for coding and later scoring those behavioural indicators mapped to this framework. Empirical data including student observation will be used as evidence to explore the validi..
