Create course-specific objectives or import objectives from the domain.

Buzz lets you create your own course-specific objectives and/or import objectives using standards that have been added at the domain level. Once imported or created, you can align these standards with activities to specify course objectives and support competency-based learning models.

Import existing standards

Navigate to the Editor using the Main Menu, and:

  1. Expand the left panel using the arrow at the bottom.
  2. Select the Target [Objectives] tab.
  3. Click the Pencil [Edit] icon in the bottom, left corner.
Import existing standards
  1. Click Import standards.
  1. From here you would choose from existing standards that exist in your domain. For example, you might be asked to specify location, grade, and subject for a list of available Common Core standards.
  2. Click Import selected standards.

Create standards

Navigate to the Editor using the Main Menu, and:

  1. Expand the left panel using the arrow at the bottom.
  2. Select the Target [Objectives] tab.
  3. Click the Pencil [Edit] icon in the bottom, left corner.
Import existing standards
  1. Open the More menu and click Add objective. Buzz asks you to confirm that you are not intending to import an existing standard; click Manually add an objective.
  1. Provide an ID for the standard and enter the new standard.
  2. Click Done.

Notes

  • Previously, the course-specific objectives created using Add appeared only in the students' Objective Mastery screens. As of January 2016, both imported objectives and objectives created in the course appear in:
    • Mastery Reports
    • The Performance tool's Mastery screen
    • Each student's Objective Mastery screen
