Create a Course Group

This lesson will teach you how to create a Course Group. Course Groups allow assessors to track their students' assessment results. Course Groups only display the submissions made to the specific course group assessor. Course Groups are also a necessary component in creating and sending Assignments. If you wish to use the Assignment tool, you must first create a Course Group containing the students to whom you will send the assignment.
