Create a Student Group from a Custom Report
Student Groups allow you to classify students by a Custom Report that you create, to build and share access to those students with other users and/or view the site and its reports through the lens of that group. For example, you can create a Custom Report called "Struggling Students" that may show a list of students according to specific criteria or filters and various pieces of data like assessment scores, attendance, state assessment data, etc. The report will reflect students based on your visibility and rostering. Based on the student list, you can make them a Student Group within the report itself, as opposed to the Students>Student Group area.
This lesson will show you how to create a student group from a Custom Report.
Where to Start
Create a Student Group
Name Your Group
If you want to have the option of logging in under your student group to narrow your viewpoint to those students when using the system (e.g., to view those students, their test scores, etc. when viewing reports such as the Student Profile Report, custom report, etc.), then:
7. Select Yes for Visibility Group, and then
8. Click Save Changes.
The summary will show the report that creates this student group. As the report is edited and updated, the student group will be updated and edited as well.
9. Reports (e.g. You can create a custom report ahead of time which you've filtered to only include students with particular test scores, demographics, etc., and then use that report to populate your student group)
10. Share (e.g. with another user, grade level, etc.).
