How can I create a group of students?
This article walks you through creating a single group of students and multiple groups at once. For example, you might create a single group for a handful of students who are making up a test, but you'd create multiple groups simultaneously when assigning students to groups to work on a project together.
Create a single group
The menu will ask if you want to Generate Groups. This option is a quick way to break-up a large class roster into groups, for example, to set up peer reviews.
We will focus on creating one group first. To exit the Generate Groups screen, Click on Cancel.
Click on + Add Group in the upper right corner of the tool bar. You will see the + Add Group screen and be able to enter your group name. Click OK when done.
Enter a Group set name in the empty top-left box. In this case, the group set is titled “Time Extension."
To add a student to your group, hover your mouse over the empty column next to the student you wish to add and Click. A green check mark should appear, indicating the student was successfully included in the group.
To remove a student from a group, Click the green check mark. It will disappear, indicating the student has been removed from the group.
Check your Group Sets
Your new group will now appear under Group Sets. If at any point you wish to make changes, you can Clone, Edit, or Delete your group.
Create multiple groups
To use the Generate Groups option, from the Groups screen, Click on Create New Group set.
Or, if you are already in the Groups screen, you can click on Generate Groups from the upper right corner of the tool bar.
Enter your 1) Group prefix 2) the Number of groups 3) the Approximate number of students per group, then 4) Click on Generate Groups.
If not all of the students are assigned to one group, the remainder will be added to another group that is created by default. You can 1) Delete Group by click the x, 2) Rename Group by clicking on the title of the group, or 3) Remove from Group any student that you wish by clicking on the green check mark next to the student's name.
