      Description

      When group mode is set to Yes in Assignment, too often our faculty are unaware that groups should be created and/or students exist in multiple groups and need groupings.

      I would like to propose that warnings if the following are true when groups mode is set to Yes:

      1. Some students are not inside a group

      2. Some students are inside multiple groups and no grouping is selected
