Editing Groups

  1. On this page, you will see the existing groups and the students assigned to them.

    • If they are cross-class groups, you will see the name given to the group set above the name fields for the groups.
    • If they are shared groups, you will see the "Assign Additional Personnel" section and the names of the people the group is shared with.

    A typical group arrangement, made of 16 students. The subject is Reading, and the scale is the Star Reading Enterprise scale. The group set name is Planet Squad, and it consists of four groups: Jovians, Saturnians, Martians, and Venusians. The group has one owner, and has 2 additional personnel assigned. The groups are set by benchmark, placing 4 students in each group.

    You can make any of the following changes on this page:

    • Group set name (for cross-class groups): Enter a new name for the group set in the appropriate field.

    • Personnel that groups are shared with: Select Add Personnel to search for personnel members to share the group with (as described here). You can stop sharing a group with someone by selecting the delete icon to the left of their name. (Note: Only groups made up of students from multiple classes can be shared. Groups created from students in a single class cannot be shared.)

    • Number of groups: Select Add to add more groups (up to 10); select the delete icon in the upper-right corner of the group's name field to delete the group (this will not affect a student's enrollment in multiple groups; students who have had their only assigned group deleted will be unassigned, but can be placed in another group).

    • Names of groups: Change the name of a group in its group name field.

    • Student placement in groups: Check or uncheck groups in the row for a student to add or remove the student from the group. Select Set Groups By Benchmark from the drop-down list to place students in groups based on how their Scaled Scores relate to the selected benchmark, or select Clear All Groups to keep all the groups but unassign all the students from them.

      Examples of how to change student placement in groups. In the row for a student, remove a check mark from a group to remove the student from that group, or add a check mark to a group to add the student. The drop-down list where you can Set Groups By Benchmark or Clear All Groups is above the table of students.
  2. When you are done making your changes, select Save (at the bottom of the page). To leave this page without saving any of your changes, select Cancel.
  3. You will arrive back on the Manage Groups page; any changes you have made to the groups will be reflected in the Student Groups table.

Viewing Groups

If you are viewing groups, the same information will be shown as described above; however, you will be unable to change any of it. If you want to have changes made to the group, contact the group's owner (listed in the "Owner" column of the Student Groups table on the Manage Groups page).

When you're done viewing the information for the group, select Return at the bottom of the page. You will arrive back on the Manage Groups page.
