How do I made a group assignment to specific groups within a group set? I only see the option to assign to the Group Set.
Group Assignments are designed to be offered to every group set within a group, not specific groups sets. We just ran into this issue at my institution and what we did was create new sections in the course and then add the students from the groups into the sections in the course. Differentiated assignments are not designed to be released to different groups. Just different sections or students in a course. If you did not want to do the sections option, you could always excuse group members from certain group assignments.
Heidi, Even if you don't add students to a group set they will still automatically have access to it to any Assignments that use that Group set. Thus the only real way to do it is to use differentiated assignments - How do I assign an assignment to an individual student? - and manually select the individual students who should have access to an assignment (here's a archived feature idea related to this - Add groups to differentiated assignments).
Hope this helps!
Anyone currently using group assignments in Canvas, or wanting to learn more, will want to check out the new CanvasLIVE "GROUPIES" series, kicking off this Tuesday, January 31, 2017 with GROUPIES: Group Assignments. RSVP “yes” if you will be there--and if you’re interested, but your schedule doesn’t allow you to attend in real time, RSVP "no" or "maybe" to receive all event updates. Your RSVP ensures that you will receive a notification should the event be cancelled or changed.
