Establish Group.

Group prefix: enter a name for your group. Group creation method: select how your group will be created.

Number of students per group: determine how many students each group will contain.

Note: this field will only be editable if “Target number of students per group” is selected as the Group creation method.

Group Assignment: determine how groups will be established.

Note: there are 7 ways students can be assigned to a group:

1. Random assignment.

2. Alphabetical by first name.

3. Round Robin assigns the first student in the list to the first group, the second student to the second group, and so on. If there are only three groups, the fourth student is assigned to the first group, the fifth student to the second, and so on.

4. Homogeneous by performance groups students with those who have the most similar scores.

5. Heterogeneous by performance evenly distributes performance, so groups end up with a balanced range of scores.

6. Heterogeneous by performance - Top/Bottom groups the highest-scoring students with the lowest-scoring, then the next highest with the next lowest, and so on.

7. Heterogeneous by performance - 1st Q/3rd Q; 2nd Q/4th Q groups highest-scoring students with next-to-lowestscoring students, then next-to-highest-scoring students with the next lowest-scoring, and so on.
