To track standards mastery and progress, you will need to align your course to learning objectives. In your course, navigate to the ‘more’ option, then to settings. Then choose Learning objectives.
From here, you will find learning objectives that have been loaded into the platform.
Choose ‘find’ and navigate to the appropriate repository. The national repository will contain most state standards including Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science and Social Studies Standards.
Drill down and find the appropriate learning objectives and then, insert the standards that will be used in this course.
For example, if this is a Grade 1 Math course, you will insert all grade 1 math standards (not specific strands).
Now, when you want to attach learning objectives to elements in your course, these will be readily available to attach to the lessons or course elements.
When you have selected the appropriate learning objectives, click ‘insert and close’.
Users also have the ability to manually create or upload learning objectives. Teachers may create their own objectives to track within a course. These objectives might be more student friendly or possibly non-academic objectives. Note: If objectives are created within a course, they cannot be shared with others unless the course is shared as a template.
An itslearning administrator can import learning objectives (standards) from an Excel format. An Excel spreadsheet can be utilized to organize the information prior to loading in the platform.
