Instructor would like to create groups in his class based on quiz scores. Is there a way to use the API to do this?
What an intriguing question and implied use case, Leslie! I've shared it with the Canvas Admins and Canvas Developers groups to attract the attention of those who are most likely to know if this can be accomplished using the API. If you're not already a member of those groups, it only takes a few clicks to join.
Our institution uses the Groups API to establish groups. Thus, based on my experience, what you describe should be possible for a developer to build. Note that so far, we haven't done this in a way involving grades.
Here's an alternate suggestion: follow the page for the Mastery Paths project in Canvas Studio. Once released, that forthcoming Canvas capability might help your instructor differentiate course content and activities based on grades, without having to build any groups!
