Info: How Group Settings Affect Various Items in a Course

Effects of Groups on Forums

The Visible Groups and Separate Groups options don’t affect how the groups interact but it affects how the forums are viewed.

With Visible Groups selected the students will be able to see the other group’s interactions but they cannot reply to the other group’s postings or replies.

With Separate Groups selected students will only be able to see their group’s specific postings and replies.

Effects of Groups on Assignments and Quizzes

When using groups a particular group can only submit one assignment or exam for the group.

With Visible Groups selected the students will be able to view the other group’s submissions once the assignments have been graded and this applies to quizzes for a group as well.

With Separate Groups selected the students will not be able to view the other group’s submissions once the assignments have been graded and this applies to quizzes for a group as well.
