How do I find an existing outcome to add to an account in Improved Outcomes Management?

You can import an individual outcome or multiple outcomes that are available to import for your institution.

Learning Standards imported to the account or sub-account levels can be found within the Account Standards outcome group. Depending on what is available to your institution, the following learning standards may be available:

  • Common Core Standards are available for Language Arts, Math, and Science (NGSS)
  • State-specific standards are available for Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies (if imported by your institution)
  • ISTE Standards for Coaches, Computer Science Educators, Students, Teachers, and Administrators

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