In the Auto create based on field, choose Number of groups to create a certain number of groups. Or, to have a specific number of students in each group, choose Members per group.

In the Group/member count field, type in the number of groups that you want to auto-create. If you selected to create a certain number of groups instead, then enter the desired number of groups.

For Allocate members, randomly is the default, but you can also select to group alphabetically or by ID number.
The three checkboxes allow you to prevent the last group from being too small. You can choose to ignore users who are already in a group and you can choose to include only users whose enroll is active (checked by default).
