The Student group creation tool allows you to create student groups in bulk.
To create Student group using this tool go to
Education > Student > Student Group creation tool
Select the Academic Term and the Program for which a student group is to be created.
By default the student group is created based on the Course only. The check box for "Separate course based Group for every Batch" allows you to create batchwise Student groups for a course.
You can leave it unchecked if you don't want to consider batch while making course based groups.
