Grouping and Activating Students
Grouping Students and Activating them for Testing
You can organize or group your students into many configurations, a class or grade being one of them. Even a single student can be a group if they need specific testing that does not align with other students.
You can organize or group your students into many configurations, a class being one of them. Grouping students organizes them for testing and reports purposes. You can create as many "groups" as you’d like and students can exist in multiple groups or in a single group of their own. No matter how many groups a student is in, their test results will in not only appear in each group they are in but their results/scores will be compiled, in totality, in the student's individual report.
Let's create a group(s) and activate the students in them, Students are automatically listed in the “All Students” group. To activate and assign a student to an additional group(s), first click on a Group name, then go to the Student column and check the corresponding box to the left of their name.
If you do not assign a student to a group, the student’s name will not display when measures are assigned to that group, and the student will not be able to login and take an assessment. To assign students to groups, first create a group name that you would like in the “Groups” box.
Login to your account and go to the Students tab. Below the Managing your Students paragraph there is a column on the left-hand side called Groups. To the right of the column called Groups,is a + sign in the green box. Click on this icon and a blank box will appear. Enter the name of the group you desire.
Now go to “Students” column on the right-hand side. With the desired group name highlighted (highlighted will appear in black) click on the small box to the left of the student’s name in the Students column. This will produce a √ (check mark) in the box and highlight the student's name in black. This assigns a students to that group. Repeat this procedure until all of the students in a given group, have a checked box next to their name and they are highlighted in black.
Once students are assigned to a group, you can begin the testing.
