A group is a collection of users or learners that are associated with one or more Administrator.

Groups are used so Administrators can only access the data, make assignments and view reports for the Users that are associated with the same group as the Administrator. This ensures that your User’s data remains private to the Administrator(s) that is in charge of the group. Administrators can be associated with multiple groups. Users can only be associated with one group.

Groups can be the name of a school, a building, a classroom, an office or any entity that needs to share information within that group. There is not a limit to the number of groups that you are allowed to create.
