How do I edit or remove a course outcome in Improved Outcomes Management?

You can edit outcomes you have created in your course. You can also remove outcomes from your course.

This lesson displays how to edit or remove outcomes in a course within an account that has enabled the Improved Outcomes Management feature option. If the Outcomes page in your course displays differently than the images in this lesson, learn how to edit or remove outcomes in the classic Outcomes page view.

Notes:

  • If an outcome does not include an Edit or Delete link, it is an account level outcome or an imported outcome that cannot be edited or deleted.
  • Outcomes that have been aligned with an assignment or question bank cannot be deleted unless they are removed from the assignment or question bank. Outcomes that have been used to assess a student cannot be deleted.
