For more information on creating assignments, please read "How do I create an assignment?."

Click "Edit" to navigate to the Assignment Sheet

Click "Objectives" from the assignment feature tabs


Click the "Add Custom Objective" button

Click the dropdown arrow and choose a category

When you add a custom objective, you will also add descriptions of the four levels of feedback. These levels and descriptions will function exactly the same way as existing objectives work. However, custom objectives are not aligned to the standards.

Click "Save" when you've completed filling out your four levels of feedback.

Once you give students feedback using a custom objective, you will no longer have the option to delete the custom objective. However, you will be able to click the edit icon (see below) on the objectives tab to edit the custom objective at any time.

Custom objectives are visible in the data center when you want to view data about student performance.
