The next screen shows you all of your groups in Compass+. You can use the Academic Year and Group Type dropdowns to filter your group list. You can also use the search field to search for a particular group:
Compass+ has five types of group:
- Year groups (blue lozenge)
- Form groups (green lozenge)
- Teaching groups (red lozenge)
- Characteristics groups (purple lozenge)
- Custom groups (black lozenge).
Year, Form and Teaching groups are fed into Compass+ via your institution’s MIS. These groups are updated overnight when Compass+ receives an update from your MIS.
Characteristics groups are groups that encompass pupils that are characterised as FSM, Pupil Premium, English as a second language and SEN eligible.
Custom groups are groups that a Compass+ user has created. They can contain any number of pupils, taken from any years. To learn more about using Custom groups, see How to create a new Custom group.
