How do I edit or remove a course outcome group in Improved Outcomes Management?

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