What do "Class" and "Group" mean?
Classes and Groups are used to separate your students so that you can see their data in different ways.
Classes are useful when a teacher has an AM and PM class. For instance, these classes can be labeled “Mr. Gorman’s AM” and “Mr. Gorman’s PM”. Then when the data is collected and reported (in the Class Totals Report and Bar Graph Analysis), it will be separate for each class. By clicking on “all students” you can also run reports for all students assigned to you.
Groups are useful for flexibility in grouping within a Class in the classroom (such as reading groups). You can add students to groups from one of your Classes, and run reports (except for the Parent Letter) just on a group of students. By clicking on “all students” you can also run reports for the whole class.
Students can be in more than one class, and more than one group within the same Teacher Account. For example, a student can belong to a reading group, math group, and table group.
