Open the Student Groups form and the following will display. Click on the Add button. Note: Clicking the Add button here creates a student group. Adding or removing students from a group is done by clicking the Change button first.

A Group ID will be assigned.  Enter the Group Name and the Group Description.  The Created On and Expires On fields are optional, however the Created On date will populate with today’s date. If an Expires On date is populated, the Student Group will no longer be available for use after that date.  When all data has been entered, click the Insert button.

If the Dynamic Analytics Group option was selected, the user can select any number of Analytics Items to associate with this group. This allows the list of students contained in this group to be automatically update when the Analytics Item is updated each evening.  It is recommended that this checkbox be selected only when no students are in the group.

Selecting multiple Analytic Items is supported. For example, selecting both SBAC ELA Most Recent - Standard Not Met and SBAC Math Most Recent - Standard Not Met, will include any students who scored a Standard Not Met - 1  on the Most Recent SBAC ELA OR Most Recent SBAC Math test.

Teacher View is another checkbox on this form. This allows the group to be visible to the teachers specified on the Associated Staff Members tab. Teachers can be added to this tab by clicking Add Staff and searching by Staff ID or Staff Name.  Once staff is selected, click the Add Staff button.  After the selected staff has been added, click the Save button.

The Communications View checkbox, when selected, allows the group to become available in Aeries Communications.  The group can be used for announcements and messaging.  For more information, see:  Aeries Communications Documentation.
