Description

GroupMaker is the best app for quickly creating diverse groups. Organize groups based on gender, performance level, or ethnicity. You can also just randomly mix everyone up into groups of 1-20 depending on your needs.

You can organize students by ethnicity, gender, or misc. The misc category can be used to sort by mastery, partial mastery, or non-mastery of contents, or anything else along those lines. The misc category is intended be flexible and opaque in the event it is seen by students.

GroupMaker is a tool to help teachers organize their classes into diverse heterogenous groups. We'd like to thank Krissie Littman, Julie Wray, and Jonathan Wray for contributing to its development.

Customer Reviews

Bill Barnes

This is an incredible app that helps teachers manage instructional groups in the classroom. The flexibility provided by using sortable attributes is a true time saver. Thanks for developing an app that improves the classroom experience immediately!

Excellent

This us an excellent app for teachers who want to make small groups taking gender or other issues, such as student performance level, into consideration.

Pretty good

This could be a great app. Love the ability to add pictures. Unfortunately groups are not always even. Also need to be able to incorporate attendance into the creation of even groups instead of just being able to mark students absent. Please add the ability to sort by # of groups so group members are evenly distributed!
