Creating a group

Groups allow you to more easily group and track student performance and usage. Each student should be assigned to at least one group. You can create new groups to represent a specific grade, class, or other organizational parameter. You can create as many groups as you need. Groups can be large or small. Each group must have its own unique name. Creating a group is a different process for Administrators and Instructors, so depending on your role, you'll follow different instructions for creating a group.

After you create a new group, you can assign specific students to a group and enable product access for a group, if necessary.
