Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.0. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Auto-create groups.
Template:GroupsIn Moodle 1.9 onwards, groups can be created automatically, with members being allocated randomly or alphabetically according to their first or last name.
Specify and Group/Member count work together.
You can specify if you would like to create
- x number of Groups or
- each group contain x number of students
- When selecting Members per group the Prevent last small group will allocate additional members to an existing group rather then create a new group with fewer members than x.
A naming scheme can be created automatically. # is replaced by sequential numbers, and @ by letters. For example:
- Group @ will create group with a naming scheme Group A, Group B, Group C . . .
- Group # will create group with a naming scheme Group 1, Group 2, Group 3 . . .
Create in grouping and Grouping name allows you to create a new grouping and allocate the new autocreated groups to be created to it.
Prior to creating the groups, you can view the groups.
