Ability to display items from separate groups side by side

Templates. We have a board where we track student data from tests given at the beginning of the semester and test given at the end of the semester. The results are in 2 separate groups - one called beginning of term and one called end of term. It would be helpful to have a way to create a template where one could display the groups side by side, so that one could view the students progress in a subject area from the beginning test to the end test.
