I'm trying to wrap my mind around a new (to us) feature in Settings called: "Launch Speed Grader Filtered by Student Group"
I like the concept; making SpeedGrader much more efficient by focusing on a small subset of students. (Especially necessary for our 500+ enrollment courses.)
However, I am looking for clarity on these "student groups". What are they? Where do they come from? They are different from "sections" (as evidenced by both being available filter options in the Gradebook)... and, yet, they appear to be automatically created, and their name and membership identically match the existing sections. (True?)
Can someone clarify:
- Where do these student groups come from?
- When are they created?
- Are they editable?
- How do they compare/contrast with manually created student group sets?
Thank you in advance for any info.
