Student groups can be created from the course roster, and will display in the student dropdown list that accompanies the Assign button within a module or individual assignment. Instructors can select (or deselect) a student group, as well as select (or deselect) specific students within a group. Instructors can also use the “Manage Students” modal for both modules and individual assignments to filter the student list by assigned group.
Note: Students can only be a member of one group at a time.
To create a student group:
- From the Roster tab on the Course page, click the Clusters sub-tab.
- Click the Create button.
- Enter a group name in the Name field.
- Use the Add and Remove buttons to add and remove members.
- Click the Save button.
Groups can always be deleted or edited by utilizing the ellipsis icon within the group tile. After clicking the ellipsis icon, select "Delete" to remove the group, or select select "Manage" to add and remove students from the group. When you are satisfied with your groups, students will be grouped by these groups when assigning assignments.
