This article walks you through creating groups of students. You can create specific groups where you choose the students in each group, or you can generate groups automatically for your entire class. As an example, the first method can be used to create a group for specific students who are making up a test, and the second method can be used to assign students to groups to work on a project together.
The screen will refresh and a Generate Groups window will appear. You can use this window to automatically separate all of your students into groups with approximately the same number of students. If you want to create one or more specific groups, press Cancel here.
Name group set and add students
Enter a Group set name in the empty top-left box. You can add more groups to this group set by clicking + Add Group again. Note that each student can only be in one group in every group set. If you need a student to be part of more than one group, you will have to create another group set.
To add students to the group, hover your mouse over the group column in the same row as the student you want to add and click. A green check mark should appear, indicating the student was successfully added to the group. To remove a student from a group, simply click the green check mark. It will disappear, indicating the student has been removed from the group.
Click "OK" to save group set
When you have finished creating your groups, click OK at the bottom-right of the page.
