Managing group information

Types of Group

In order to be assigned a test, your students must belong to a group.

These are the three types of groups.

  • Class/Year groups – for all the different classes and year groups in the school
  • Customised groups – for students showing particular ability levels (for example, an advanced reading group)
  • Super-groups – a group made up of several existing groups (for example, all the advanced reading groups in one group)
    • Use super-groups when your school wishes to track the progress of a set of target groups over time.

Generally, your class and year groups will be set up by importing from your SMS. Customised and super-groups are set up manually, using the steps below.

Importing students – outlines the five-step process you will need to carry out to import student and group data into e-asTTle.
