How do I split up a group for a group assessment?

There is a way to automatically create new groups based upon membership of a particular group or grouping, though it does not allow you to choose who goes into each new group - it allocates students randomly.

If you want greater control over who is put in each group you will need to manually create the groups, then manually add students to each group.



How do I restrict something to a specific group or grouping?

The settings of every activity, resource and module allows you to restrict who can access it. There is a page in the Gateway with more detailed information on this.
