Add people to groups without dragging?

Jump to solution

I have two courses in which I use assignment groups, and each course has a large number of groups. Dragging students to groups one-by-one is fairly easy for about the first 7 groups, but then gets progressively more cumbersome for any larger number of groups. By the time I get to group # 15 or so, it is taking a really long time to build each group: scroll up to see the student list, scroll through the list, find the name, drag the name out, hold it awkwardly while scrolling down to find the group, drop it in, repeat, repeat, repeat, one ... student ... at ... a ... time .... Is there an easier way to do this? There doesn't seem to be a way to add students by name from within the group (as one might add a student to a quiz or assignment), and this drag and drop function is cuter than it is functional.

Ugh ... just figured out the "+" route. It's better. Still a lot to pile in a pop-out menu, but switching from dragging to plus-ing halfway through is definitely less terrible!
