What are skill groups?

A skill group is a broad category under which individual skills are classified in an assessment. It serves as an umbrella term that encapsulates a set of related skills. For instance, in an English essay assessment, "Grammar" could be a skill group, under which individual skills like "Use of Punctuation", "Sentence Structure", and "Spelling" could be placed.

Skill groups play a significant role in organising the assessment and making it easier to track and understand. They also help in providing a structured and comprehensive overview of the student's abilities in different areas.

Creating a skill group involves:
