Why doesn't the student group query sort properly?

You can adjust the sort key for student groups. To do this:

  1. Access the Student Group Category via System Homepage > Configuration/Classification/Student Groups.
  2. Update the Sort Key in the query results screen and click Update Records to save your changes.

Additional Information

Sort Keys are used to group/sort similar named values together and/or to order values in a particular way. Whereas often just sorting alphabetically doesn't keep similar values together and/or in a particular order that makes sense to the user. This is the first level of sorting applied to a field in the query results. The next level is applying the sort within the query itself.
