I agree that it is confusing for students. And I get that the problem is purposefully confusing and that's part of the later discussion, but the assignment itself does not need to be so confusing. I combined the Criteria and Goals columns into "Group Criteria/Goals", and then changed the column "How My Plan Accounts for it" to "How my individual plan reaches this goal." This also helped them recognize what was to be done with the group and what was to be done individually, plus that language was more clear for students. Also, I changed the "Make a Route" section to "Create Your Itinerary" and had them list things in time order.
