How do I use the Objectives tool?

During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

From the Objectives tool you can:

  • Create, delete, search, and edit Objective Sets. Clicking an Objective Set ID opens its Objective Set screen, from which you can:
    • Navigate to the objective set's Domain screen.
    • Use the toolbar button to Edit it.
    • Add, delete, import, and search objectives.
  • Create, delete, search, and edit Objective Maps. Clicking an Objective Map ID opens its Objective Map screen, from which you can:
    • Navigate to the objective map's Domain screen.
    • Use the toolbar button to Edit it.
    • Add, delete, import, and search objective mapping.
New UI

Learning objectives are statements that describe what a student should learn, know, or be able to do after completing a learning activity. Objectives can be defined by organizations, schools, course authors, etc. Most U.S. states define standard objectives in K-12 subjects, but not all states define the same sets of objectives.

The Objectives tool allows you to create, delete, search, and edit:

  1. Objective Sets, which are collections of objectives that belong together. Objective Sets help organize your objectives, as you may need different sets for different purposes.
    • Example: You may want to include standard objectives from two different states.
  2. Objective Maps, which allow you correlate objectives from different Objective Sets, so you can align activities and questions the appropriate objectives from those different sets.
    • Example: If Objective 1 from Objective Set 1 covers simliar criteria as Objective 2 from Objective Set 2, and you need students to meet both, you would correlate those objectives, so when students meet the criteria, both objectives are marked as having been met. This is most frequently done to align state standards with a national standard.
