How to create student groups in Schoolytics

Schoolytics enables teachers to create flexible student groups 

Flexible grouping is a key instructional practice that allows teachers to deliver and monitor student work based on data. Schoolytics supports flexible grouping and data-based decisions in several ways. Teachers can:

  • Build student groups with students from across classes, not just within one class
  • Use classwork and assessment data to decide how to build student groups 
  • Monitor student group performance over time

This article shows how to create student groups in Schoolytics and how to use this feature to support instructional planning and teaching.
