With the group formation activity you can let students submit their work as part of a group.
How it works
You can decide if students are allowed to create their groups themselves or if the instructor creates groups beforehand. When the groups are created, the first student who is ready to submit will submit on behalf of the group.
The activity is completed when students created their group or when an instructor has created groups on behalf of students.
What activities can connect to the group formation activity
Directly: Submission (submit as a group)
Indirectly: Peer review connected to a group submission (individual review of another group submission)
Indirectly: Instructor review connected to a group submission (review a group submission)
