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

You can edit outcomes you have created in your account. You can also remove outcomes from your account.

This lesson displays how to edit or remove outcomes 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 outcomes in the classic Outcomes page view.

Notes:

  • If an outcome does not include an Edit or Delete link, it is an account level outcome or an imported outcome that cannot be edited or deleted.
  • Outcomes that have been aligned with an assignment or question bank cannot be deleted unless they are removed from the assignment or question bank. Outcomes that have been used to assess a student cannot be deleted.
