How do I find an existing outcome to add to an account?

All outcomes added at the account or sub-account level will be available to courses within the account. You can find and import Account Standards, which are outcomes that have been created by you or other users with admin permissions for the entire institution. You can also find State and Common Core Standards.

You can import an individual outcome or import an entire outcome group.
