Teachers can assign students to small groups in their classes. These small groups help create a more informal atmosphere for student discussion. Small groups can be set up at the class level or assignment level. Class level settings will apply groups for all assignments in that class and assignment level settings will only apply groups for the selected assignment.
Important: Assignment settings will override class settings.
