How do I create an Outcome for my account?

Outcomes can be created from the account, sub-account, or course-level. You can create nested outcomes, or import State or Common Core Standards into your account, sub-account, or course.

Open Account

In Global Navigation, click the Courses drop-down menu [1], then click the name of the account [2].

Open Outcome

In Account Navigation, click the Outcomes link.

Add Outcome

Click the New Outcome button.

Create Outcome

Enter a name for the outcome in the Name this outcome field [1].

When instructors allow students to view Learning Mastery scores on the Grades page, students will see the name of the outcome.

You can also enter a description in the Rich Content Editor field [2].

Add Criterion Ratings

Edit the Criterion Ratings:

  1. Click the Edit icon to edit the criterion rating.
  2. Name the criterion by typing in the criterion name field.
  3. Set the criterion point value by typing in the points field.
  4. Click Ok to save the criterion.
  5. Click Delete to remove the criterion.
  6. Add additional criterion ratings clicking on the Insert link and entering the information.
  7. Choose the threshold by typing in the point value necessary to master the Learning Outcome in the Master at field.
  8. Click the Save button to create the Outcome.

Note: Outcomes can be included in assignment rubrics as an easy way to assess mastery of outcomes aligned to specific assignments. When you define a learning outcome, you should also define a criterion that can be used when building assignment rubrics. Define as many rubric columns as you need, and specify a point threshold that will be used to define mastery of this outcome.
