1 Setting Up Groups in D2L Emily Evans, Center for Applied Linguistics January 2007 New Jersey Department of Education Developed by the Center for Applied Linguistics

2 Setting Up Groups in D2L 2 Objectives of this Training To learn how to group your Test Administrators records within the D2L system To learn how to view your groups grades separately from the rest of the state

3 Setting Up Groups in D2L 3 How and why would I create groups? As an ACCESS Test Facilitator, you have WIDA Instructor status This status gives you certain access privileges in D2L that Test Administrators (D2L students) do not have Enrolling Test Administrators Access to Gradebook functions In its default setting, your states Classlist and Gradebook will show all the students enrolled in the state course Because there could be thousands of teachers enrolled in your state, sorting by group will come in quite handy when you are verifying grades

4 Setting Up Groups in D2L 4 Before you get started… Alphabetize your list of people you want to group, and decide what you want to name your group (e.g., District 26, or Johnson County Public Schools, or 526) Please note: To add someone to a D2L Group, this person must already be registered in the D2L course for your state For instructions on enrolling test administrators, please see the Preparing to Conduct ACCESS for ELLs ® Testing PowerPoint presentation in this toolkit
