Click "Edit" to navigate in the actions bar


Click "Objectives" on the right


Click the "Add Custom Objective" button


Click the drop-down 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. However, custom objectives are not aligned to the standards.

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


To edit an objective after creating it

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.

The edit icon appears to the right of the objective in the objectives checklist.
