Creating a User Defined Group means selecting a specific group of students, outside of your regular class groups, to monitor and to whom you can assign particular tasks. For example, this could be done for Breakfast Clubs or After-School groups.
To do this sign in to SAM Learning using your Admin or Teacher login details.
Once you have logged in, click on the Classes tab followed by the Manage Groups button at the top of the screen.
You will then need to click on the Create New Group button, found at the top of the page.
Create a name for your group by typing it in the box.
The next screen will allow you to select the Year Group and the Class using the dropdown menu.
Once you have chosen the Year Group and Class, select which learners to include in the group and click the Add button. If you add a student by accident, click on his/her name and then the Remove button.
Once you have selected and added all relevant learners, click on the next button.
In exactly the same manner as you added the students, you can now select which, if any, other teachers should be able to view the group.
Once you are happy with your group, click on the Finish button. The next screen will confirm that the group has been created.
