How do I create Outcome groups for my course?

Grouping Outcomes in a course allows for organization of multiple related Outcomes.

Note: You can also select, navigate, and drop an Outcome using a keyboard. To view the keyboard shortcuts, press the comma key. An Outcome will always be placed below the Outcome where you drop it. To replace an Outcome at the beginning of the Outcome list, drop the Outcome at the top. By default the Outcome will appear as the second Outcome item in the Outcome list. Then move the top Outcome down below your preferred Outcome.
