How do I add outcomes to a resource in Commons?

Users can search for and tag resources with K12 Federal or State outcomes, which Commons leverages through the Academic Benchmarks API. By default, Standards and Outcomes settings are enabled. If you don't have access to them, your account admin might have them disabled.

As a sharing user, if the Grade/Level you have selected is between Kindergarten through 12th grade, you can tag resources with outcomes when sharing or editing a resource.

As a discovering user, you can search for resources by outcome. Resources with associated outcomes will be indicated by the target icon.
