This article provides insight into how you might like to structure groups at your school
What groups should I create
Students can be associated to multiple groups and their one checkin will be able to be viewed in any group where they are listed. Groups help you organise your wellbeing data and manage who sees what data.
The following are examples of how to structure groups
1. Tutor groups / homerooms / mentor groups
These staff would often only need to see wellbeing data for their specific group of students. In this case, you would create a group, e.g. 'tutor group 1' and put those students plus that teacher (wellbeing facilitator account) in the group. For junior school, classroom groups can be created.
2. Grades / year groups / house groups
A teacher may look after a larger group of students, such as a house or a year/grade. In this case, you would create a group, e.g. 'year 7' and put those students plus that teacher (wellbeing facilitator account) in the group.
Using groups for further analysis
You may also want to create a group for further analysis of your wellbeing data. For example, some schools have created groups based on ethnicity, gender, international students or those attending certain programs. In this case, you may not need to assign a teacher to this group but instead it is to help inform senior leadership decision making and reporting. To do this, simply create a group, e.g. 'Indigenous students' and put the emails of the students you wish to be in this group. You can then look specifically at wellbeing data for this group.
