Create a Group

Within an active classroom session, navigate to the "Groups Menu" at the top of the class view. Click "Add group".

Next, in the box tagged "Group name" type in your chosen group name. Click on students to add them to the group. If a student is already assigned to another group, the group name will be shown in orange. If they are selected, they will be moved to the new group.

Toggle group view

In the Groups menu, click "Display groups" to view all students by group in your class. You can uncheck this box to return to the default view of the whole class.

Groups are sorted in alphabetical order by group name.

Delete a Group

To remove a group, click on the three-dot menu on the top right corner of a group and click "Delete".

 

Edit a Group 

To make changes to a group, click on the three-dot in the top right corner of a group and click "Edit".

In the sidebar that appears you can change the group’s name or change which students are part of the group. Click on students to add them to the group. If a student is already assigned to another group, the group name will be shown in orange. If they are selected, they will be moved to the new group. You can click on a student that is already in the group to deselect them.

 

Use teacher tools with a Group

To use tools like Push URL or Announce with a group, use the checkbox to the left of the group name to select all students in the group.  

Then, click any of the teacher tools in the top menu bar to use that tool with only students in that group. You can also select multiple groups, or individual students by clicking the select checkbox in the upper left of the group or the student card.
