Separate students by group in assignments instead of by individual student
Right now we can set an assignment per student with in a class, but what we really need is to set an assignment by a group of students with in a class. For example, I have 11 Year-1 IB students along 4 Year-2 students in my IB Art class. I have to assign Yr-1 assignments to 11 students each time - individually. I would love to be able to make a group of students and assign to this group. This would also make it easier for us to have multiple classes with in a Team. As it is now, I have 2 of the same prep classes but different teams, but making assignment groups, we could actually reduce our number of Teams and copying assignments. https://youtu.be/GimUh8gCKJo
Teachers need to be able to assign differentiated assignments to their students, and in some cases groupings need to be based on confidential accommodations. So creating a group of students like that can be delicate-- they can see who else needs the accommodation. So it would be beneficial if a teacher could create a group that only they can see when creating assignments. (eg, instead of searching for each individual group member to assign, search for the "green group") Another possibility might be an option for blind membership to a read-only channel.

Would it be possible to use tags in order to separate assignments by student - we have the same problem - and Arts elective with different students selecting different media (drawing, mixed media, photography etc) we have separate channels (not private as otherwise we can't schedule / record meetings) so would like to tag the students and then use the tags for meetings and for assignments.
Or maybe since private channels already group students in a way, perhaps make it possible to select a private channel and assign work to all those in the private channel?
That way at least we don't have to keep looking for and clicking a bunch of names.
