How do I align an Outcome with a Question Bank?

Aligning outcomes to a bank of questions can provide a more accurate measurement than a single question because of the possible variety of questions and what is being measured. When applicable, you can align multiple outcomes to a question bank by aligning outcomes one at a time.
