How do I edit settings for learning outcomes in the assessment library?

Updated Apr 01, 2021

You can edit settings for learning outcomes in the assessment library. Editing outcome settings for the account allows you to set default scoring information for all outcomes in the account. However, the scoring ranges can be edited on individual outcomes, but not the assigned level labels or colors.

Notes:

  • Default start and end scores can be changed for individual outcomes. However, the color assigned to each level cannot be changed for individual outcomes.
  • Outcomes scored before settings were updated will retain their original scoring information. Outcomes created after settings were updated will be scored by default with the updated account settings, unless edited at the outcome level.
