A group in open assessment means one or more individuals who participate in some activity, e.g. performing or reading an assessment. All information objects have a research question about an issue X. Groups are crucial because all research questions are actually implicitly in this format: "What can we as a group know about issue X?" The group considering a particular issue may be explicitly described, but it may also be implicit. In the latter case, it typically means anyone who wants to participate, or alternatively, the whole mankind.
