The only way to organize people in Alludo before Groups was school sites. While important organizing people by school sites was quite limiting: a person can belong to one and only one school site.
- What if you want to organize people by school site and grade level, subject area, or favourite sports team?
- What if you want to organize people in a game into project teams?
- What if you want to organize people into certificated staff, classified staff, para professionals, administrative staff, and parents?
You can do this with school sites but it gets unruly quickly. With groups you no longer have to hack school sites to create groups.
Types of Groups
There are two types of groups: district-based groups and game-based groups. As the names imply, district-based groups organize people within the context of the entire district and game-based groups organize people within the context of a single game.
Once you have people organized into groups you can view how the each group is performing within the Group Performance report. Be sure to check out the related articles to dig deeper into things like Group Reporting.
