How do I add learning outcomes to the assessment library?

Enter Outcome Details

Enter a title [1] and a description [2] for the learning outcome. To add hyperlinks in the description, use markdown formatting. Type the text you want to link in brackets [3] and then type the destination URL between parentheses [4]. There should be no space between the closing bracket and the first parenthesis.

 You can designate an outcome to be available at the institution, program, or course level. To select a level, click the radio button for the corresponding level [5].
