How do I view Student Groups?

To view Groups within your course, use the People course navigation link.

Open People

Open People

Click the People link.

View User Groups

Click the View User Groups button or an existing user group. Existing user groups will be listed as additional tabs for easy access to the group information. If you do not have any user groups in your course, Canvas will display a Groups tab that will take you to the student groups creation page.

View Group Sets

The highlighted tab [1] shows which group set you are viewing. You can view which students are assigned to each group in the group set by clicking the group name [2]. You can switch the group you are viewing by clicking the group set tabs at the top [3].

Visit Group Homepage

Next to the group name, click the Settings icon [1]. Then click the Visit Group Homepage button [2].

View Group Dashboard

When viewing a student group, you can easily switch and view all groups within a group set by clicking the drop-down arrow next to the group name [1]. Also, instructors and student group leaders will see an Edit Group link [2] as part of the group dashboard. This link allows quick access to edit the name of the group.
