Creating and Using Groups

Groups are used primarily for reporting. If you want to run reports on a group of students who are not all enrolled in the same class but are spread across several classes, you can create a group, put all of the students into that group, and then run reports on the students in that group. 

Individual students, groups of students, and/or classes can be placed in a group. Instead of having to drill through the students names as they are listed in the Students tab in the Reporting section, you can run a report on one group that contains all the students you want included in the report. 

 

To create a group, click the My Students or My School link in the left navigation panel. From the pull-down menu at the top of the center panel, select New >Group.

Create a name for the group and click Save.

To add students to a group: open your list of students, select the check boxes for the students you want to include, select Add to group from the Actions pull-down menu, and click Add.

The students are added to the group you specified.

Using Groups for Reporting

Groups are used primarily for reporting. If you want to run reports on a group of students who are not all enrolled in the same class but are spread across several classes, you can create a group, put all of the students into that group, and then run reports on the students in that group. For example, if you want to run a Student Progress report on the students in a group:

  1. Click My Groups in the left navigation panel. From the list of Groups that appear, select the group you want to target with the report (in this example, "Advanced Placement").
  2. Click Run Report, and from the pull-down menu that opens, select the report category. A second menu opens showing reports in that category.
  3. Select the report you want to use (in this example, "Student Progress").

A separate window opens, prompting you to add settings for your report. The top of the window includes tabs where you specify details, include curricula, include assignments, designate students, set a schedule for the report, and run the report.

  1. Click through these tabs to specify the details of your report. When you reach the Students tab, note that the group you chose for the report is already specified.

When you run the report, it will show Student Progress data for the students in your Advanced Placement group.
