Manually Creating a Group and Adding it to a Grouping

This support page describes how to create a group manually, add the students you want to it and include it in a 'set of groups', or 'grouping'.

You should almost always create a grouping to collect a set of related groups together. Students can be members of multiple groups for different purposes, and a grouping allows you to specify the groups for a specific purpose. This also allows you to re-use groups & their memberships for additional purposes.
