How do I edit or remove an account outcome group in Improved Outcomes Management?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I edit or remove an account outcome group in Improved Outcomes Management?

If you created an outcome group in your account that you need to edit or remove, you can do so as long as the outcomes in the group have not yet been used to assess a student. Once an outcome in the group has been aligned with an item or artifact and used for scoring, you cannot modify the outcome group. You can still modify the details of the outcome group.

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

This lesson displays how to edit or remove outcome groups in an account that has enabled the Improved Outcomes Management feature option. If the Outcomes page in your account displays differently than the images in this lesson, learn how to edit or remove outcome groups in the classic Outcomes page view.
