    In large classes, I want students to be able to submit group assignments where they pick their own groups. As is, it currently works that I would have to generate a Group Set for an assignment. I can randomly assign students to groups. If I want students to be able to form their own groups, however, I would have to generate a set of placeholder groups for them to join. With hundreds of students in my class, and multiple group assignments, this creates a very long list of groups that students would have to navigate to join their group. It seems that students should be able to create a student group and associate it with a particular group assignment.
