Term groups are used during assignment activities for peer review and interaction. These groups are consistent throughout the term, allowing a group of students to stay together and deepen interaction. Students must be assigned to one group, if you do not want to use groups, then you’ll have just one default group. Students populate the default group when they enroll in YouSeeU either by clicking the link in their LMS or registering on our site. The groups remain empty until students are enrolled into the class.
Creating Term Groups
Start by selecting the Setup button in the main menu, if you have more than one class then select the class you want to edit using the drop down menu in the area next to the logout button. Then, select Term Groups in the left menu.
Create your first term group by entering a group name then click Add. Continue adding term groups until you have enough groups for your class enrollment.
Drag and drop students to reassign them from one group to another, then click Save to finalize the group membership.
Using Term Groups for an Assignment
If you want to use your term groups for a group project, you will need to set the groups for that project to Educator Formed. After the activity is created, you can go into the group creation area, and there will be an option to use your term groups.
