How do I create Quick Lists?

Quick Lists enable you to easily group and intervene with a set of students who have similar needs

From the homepage, click on the People icon under the title of a course.

From the People tab, click the Clipboard icon.

Type each student name into the Add student, quick list, or group field and select them from the autofill dropdown. Exclude students from the list by unchecking the boxes next to their names in the Clipboard list above the Add student, quick list, or group field.

Click the dropdown for "Quick lists" once you have added all intended students to the list, and click Save.

In the pop up window, give the list a descriptive name and click OK to confirm.

Once created and saved, you can use the Clipboard to send Quick List members messages, award them badges, and assign them activities and tasks.


  • To clear your list entirely, check your full Clipboard list and click Remove.
  • Quick List members are unable to see other members of the list.
  • You can add students to the Clipboard directly from Students and Gradebook tools.
