If you created an outcome in your account or sub-account that you need to edit or delete, you can do so as long as the outcome has not yet been used to assess a student. Once the outcome has been used for scoring, you cannot modify the outcome.

You can delete an outcome group as long as it does not contain any outcomes that cannot be modified.

Notes:

  • You can modify any outcomes or outcome groups where you have permission.
  • Outcomes that cannot be edited but can be deleted are aligned with a question bank but have not yet been used to assess a student.
