Otus provides the ability to put teachers into Teacher Groups at the administrator level.

How Can Teacher Groups Be Used?

First, it is important to note that teacher groups can only be seen and used by administrator accounts. Teachers are unable to use teacher groups. The question then becomes how can administrators use these teacher groups. Teacher groups can be used to:

Create the Group

  • Step 1: From the District Home Page, choose Teacher Groups.

  • Step 2: Select Create Group.

  • Step 3: Title your new teacher group and choose a color. (3 character minimum)

  • Step 4: Select Add.

Add Teachers to the Group

  • Step 1: Select the ellipsis on the desired group and click Assign Teachers.

  • Step 2: If you are an administrator that is assigned to multiple sites (schools), you will have to click the magnifying class field at the top of the list on the right to choose the appropriate site first.

  • Step 3: Select the teacher(s) you'd like to add to the group.

  • Step 4: Select Done.

View or Remove Teachers

To see a list of the teachers in a group, select the ellipsis, then choose View Teachers.

To remove a teacher from a group, select the X next to any teacher's name.

Edit the Name or Color of the Group

You can change the title and/or color of the group here. Select the ellipsis and choose Edit.

Delete the Group

To delete the group, select the ellipsis and choose Delete.

❗ Please delete groups with caution, as this action cannot be undone.

FAQ and Troubleshooting

If I add more teachers to a group that has a shared assessment folder, will the new teachers automatically have access to the folder?

Adding teachers to the group will automatically share the folder(s) with them.

Can teachers see what groups they are in?

No, only administrator accounts are able to see the list of teacher groups. There is not indication in a teacher account that they are part of a teacher group.
