The reason to set up groups is so that you can assign assignments to particular groups of students. When doing this, the assignment can be joined only by students in those specific group or groups.
NOTE: If assigning activities to student groups, only students signing in with usernames tagged to the assigned group will have access to the assignment. Check out this article if students are struggling to access your assignment that is tagged to groups.
Creating groups is done from your Groups page; click Students & Groups.
