In this lesson, you will review how Student Groups in Classroom are set up and the idea behind student groups in IO Classroom. Student Groups are used to create classes and track student progress.
Where to Start
Go to Account > Student Groups
Create a new student group by clicking Create New Group.
Your group can be populated with different criteria. To select the students that you would like to place in your new group use the Criteria drop-down menu to sort students by Flags, Age, Official Class, Counselor, Cohort, Course Code, Course Section and Teacher, and Ethnicity. Add a student by selecting the checkbox adjacent to their name.
Selected students will be indicated below the Group Name section, which allows you to provide a name for your group. You can also remove students by clicking the red X icon adjacent to their name.
Once your changes are complete, click the save button to save your group.
Note: By default, your group will be set to private, only allowing it to be visible only to you. If you wish to have it visible for other users, please uncheck the checkbox adjacent to private.
After completing your group requirements, you will now be brought to the Saved Groups page where you will have access to your newly created student group. To edit a group that is already created or your new group, click the group's title.
Note: You may only view groups that you have created.
You may also delete a group after selecting it by clicking the Delete button.
