Upload Student Groups

Instead of creating locked classes, Student Groups allow you to filter for and track custom groups of students over time. New groups are created in the Utilities application and then you can filter for groups within Student Portfolio or generate reports in both State Assessment or TEKScore.

To save time, upload new groups containing students TSDS numbers instead of entering them in one at a time.

Please note: you can only upload to a new group. The upload icon will not be available on existing groups that include students.
