How do I manage crosswalks when aligning by standard?

When you align by standard, the Standards Alignment app uses default standard crosswalks to predict possible learning object alignments. Crosswalked objects are those that have one or more skills in common with other standards. To refine the list of predicted objects, you can include or exclude default crosswalks.
