Managing Outcomes in New Quizzes

New Quizzes has a new system for managing outcomes. You can add outcomes to an overall quiz or single questions. Outcomes attached to quizzes and questions can track student performance over time.

Note: You must have outcomes previously created before you can add them to your New Quiz. The Learning Mastery Gradebook does not sync with New Quizzes (How do I align an outcome to an assessment in New Quizzes? external link icon ).
