Step 4: After Launching Your Group Assessment, students will be randomly assigned to a Group Automatically. Click 'View Rooms' to see the groupings and edit the groups.

If you would like to edit the room assigned to your students you have the ability to move them. To do this click on the three dots on the right-hand side of the student.

  1. The assessment will become locked when there is at least one student that has participated in a Group Assessment. Locked means that an instructor can no longer edit certain parameters in the Group Assessment OR move students between Rooms.

  2. Make sure your students have the most up-to-date version of their mobile apps in order to participate.
