Teacher groups can be used for sharing assignments so all teachers in the group can administer the assignment to any of their classes and the data can be shared by the group. Sharing permissions are set for the whole group at the time the assignment is shared.
Note: School Reporting Mode is not available on free or paid single-teacher accounts. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to upgrade to a school or district license.
Create a teacher group to share assignments to teachers associated to the group.
1.1 Within Admin Mode, select the "More" tab from the Admin home page and then select "Groups" from the list menu.
1.2 Select "New Teacher Group" from the New drop-down menu.
1.3 Type a Name (1) for the group, choose a school from the list (2) and select the "Save" link (3).
1.4 Use the filters to locate teachers to add to the group.
1.5 Choose the teachers you wish to add to the group by placing a check in the box next to each name (1) and then select the "Save" link (2).
1.6 Click the "Back" arrow to return to the Group’s main screen where the list of all groups for GradeCam accounts are displayed.
Note: From this screen you now have the option to manage, edit or delete groups.
The name or school association can be edited for a teacher group.
2.1 Select the teacher group by clicking the check box before the group name.
2.2 Then in the toolbar choose the "Edit" button.
2.3 Make changes to the name or school association (1) and then select "Save" (2).

Once a teacher group has been created, teachers can be added or removed to the teacher group.
Note: If assignments have been shared to the teacher group prior to adding or removing teachers in the teacher group, sharing permissions given for the shared assignments to the teacher group will automatically be associated to the added or removed teachers. The owner of the assignment can access the data in "Reports". Those with permission for School Reporting can view data for the assignment that was shared to the removed teachers.
3.1 Click on the name of the teacher group to open the Manage window.

Those with permission for School Reporting can view data for the assignment that was shared to the deleted teacher group.
