The Course Groups tool in CoursePlus enables you to set up groups of students that can then be utilized in many ways throughout your CoursePlus site: private discussion forum categories for each group, having a single student submit a file to a Drop Box on behalf of a whole group, and more. Now there's a new Course Groups-enabled feature in CoursePlus: the ability to assign a single grade to a group of students.
When you go to the "Enter Grades" page in the Gradebook for a given activity, a separate box appears on screen that lists all the Course Groups in the CoursePlus site for that course. Clicking on a group brings you to a screen where you can enter a single grade for every member of that group. You can even return a file for each member of the group.
You can override the grade of an individual group member if you want, but now you have a tool for quick and easy assignation of grades to all members of a group in the class!
If you have feedback about this new feature, we're always interested in hearing what you have to say.
