There are three types of groups in the application:
- Student Group - A group of students within a classroom or course.
- Course Group - A group of courses or classes. Depending on the user role, a Course Group may include only the courses assigned to one teacher, or may include similar courses in a school or district.
- PLC Staff Group - Members of a PLC work collaboratively to create items, assessments, score assessments, view reports and analyze data for all students that make up the PLC.
In this lesson, we will review the process for creating a new Course Group.
