What Are Groups?

A group is a collection of users or learners that are associated with one or more Administrator.

Groups are used so Administrators can only access the data, make assignments and view reports for the Users that are associated with the same group as the Administrator. This ensures that your User’s data remains private to the Administrator(s) that is in charge of the group.

Groups can be the name of a school, a building, a classroom, an office or any entity that needs to share information within that group. There is not a limit to the number of groups that you are allowed to create.

Here is an illustration of how a typical school district would setup their account.

 How do I create Groups

Only the System Administrator can create groups.  To create a group select the Groups button from the SA Home Tab.  From here you can create groups or view groups.

Select the View Groups button. You can edit the name of a group by selecting if from the list.  Make your changes and select Update.  You can also create a new group by selecting the Create Group button at the bottom of the screen.

To create a new group, all you need to do is fill in the name of the group and select Create.  Everything under the Create a group owner account is optional.  It does not need to be filled in.  These fields are here is you want to add an Administrator who will be in charge of this group.  This can also be done using the Create Account tab.
