This article walks you through creating a single group of students, as opposed to 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.

Step 1

From your home page, go to Instructor Console.



Step 2

Click Roster & Groups.


Step 3

Click on “Create New Group Set.”


Step 4

The screen will refresh and menu will appear over another page. The menu will ask if you want to Generate Groups. If you want to create only one specific group, press Cancel here. 


Step 5

From the page that appears, click on “+ Add Group” in the top-right corner.


Step 6

Title your group (in this case “Time Extension Students”), and press “OK.”


Step 7

Enter a "group set name" in the empty top-left box. In this case, the group set is titled “Time Extension."

To add students to the group, hover your mouse over the empty column next to each student and click. A green check mark should appear, indicating the student was successfully included in 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.


Step 8

When you have finished creating your group, click “OK” at the bottom-right of the page.


Step 9

Your new group will now appear under “Group Sets.” If at any point you wish to make changes to this group, click “Edit.”
