Creating a User Group

Use this page when you want to create a user group. User groups allow educators to organize student accounts, making it easier to manage the student roster. All educators can create and manage their own user groups in ways that make sense for them. User groups are only seen by the educator that created them, and therefore cannot be shared with other educators.
Frequently Asked Questions
When should I use User Groups and when should I use Classes?
User Groups are personalized groups that individual educators can manage, but not share with others. User Groups are useful for creating “watchlists” of students you want to keep an eye on, but can also be used for all of the reporting features that Classes can be used for. The biggest difference is that you cannot share a User Group with another educator. Classes are shareable groups of students to be used for bulk enrolling and monitoring larger groups of students. Classes also has the option of pre-selecting one or many subjects which will automatically filter any enrollment data to those subjects assigned to the class.
