Updated over a week ago

Especially in large groups, it can be useful to divide your students into groups. This allows Teachers to assign Teaching assistants to smaller groups, and filter the Report environment only on these smaller groups.

How to create a new group

On the Dashboard, in the upper left corner, click on "Users", and then on "Groups".

You will see all the existing groups there.

Manually create new groups

If you want to create a new group, click on "Add group" in the upper right corner.

A new window will open up, where you will be asked to choose a name for the group. Click on "Add group"

In the next step, you can choose which students you want to add to the group you just created:

Create groups automatically

You can also generate groups automatically. Click on "Add group" and choose "Or generate groups".

Number and method: the number of students you would like to have in each group or the number of groups you would like to generate.

Prefix: choose a word to show up before the number of the group. For example, you can use words like: group, team, pair

In this example, the prefix is "Group" and the generated groups are called: Group 1, Group 2, Group 3.

Postfix: choose a word to show up after the number of the group. In this example the postfix is "Team" and the generated groups are: 1 Team, 2 Team.

Exclude students: choose the students that shouldn't be included in the automatically generated groups.

Group by: choose to create the groups by the first name, last name, user id, or generate them randomly.
