- You want to allocate a particular activity or resource to just one class or set of users and you don’t want others to see it.
COMMENT – give instructions for these specific scenarios on child pages?
- possible child pages:
- how to create a group
- how to create a grouping
- how to use groups in the gradebook
- how to use groupings to restrict access to resources and activities

Use of Groups in Assignments -
- ignore group submission settings for now;
-Visible groups, no groupings, available to group members checked - no change in student submission area
-No groups, select particular grouping, available to group members checked - seems to limit student access based on groups/groupings as expected, instructor does have an text indicator that assigment access is limited by group; if instructor changes role to 'Student', there is no indicator that assignment is limited
-Visible groups, select particular grouping, available to group members checked - same result as above, "Group mode" irrelevant
Result: -use of "Group mode" seems irrelevant; no change in student submission area, use of Grouping and available to group members only can be used to limit access of assignments to students
Use of Groups with Files:
"Group mode" is not available; to selectively make a file available to groups, will need groupings
- Cannot select from grouping pull-down unless "Available to group members" is checked
Observations: At the topic area level, restrict access allows restrictions based on 6 parameters. At the resource and activity level, restrict access allows restrictions based on 4 parameter; group and grouping restrictions are set in the common module area. Is there some server level setting that controls this?

Based on the availability of "Groups" as a parameter for restricting access (now available based on a setting being disable on 10/23 by Bobby), we are testing whether we can restrict access of resources and activities using only "Groups" and possibly eliminate the need for Groupings.
