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

Align outcomes using the Editor

Once Multi-Outcome Scoring is enabled in your domain and your course, you can start aligning activities with the specified objectives.

  1. Open the Editor using the Main Menu.
  2. Create or select the activity for which you want to align objectives.
  3. Click the pencil (edit) icon and select the Gradebook tab.
  4. Enter the possible points for each of the desired objectives in the fields next to them; if you don't assign points, the activity will not be graded according to that objective. Auto-graded activities, like assessments and practice questions, can only be aligned with one objective (see Tips).
  5. Save.

Align objectives using the Clipboard

You can also align gradable Clipboard activities with objectives.

  1. Add students to the Clipboard.
  2. Choose an activity type under Add an Activity.
  3. Check the Gradable box under the activity title; click the pencil (edit) icon to change the activity title.
  4. Click Edit and Assign.
Align objectives using the Clipboard
  1. Assign points to the desired objectives. If you don't assign points, the activity will not be graded according to that objective. Auto-graded activities, like assessments and practice questions, can only be aligned with one objective (see Tips).
  2. Click Assign to save.

Tips

  • Only your system admin can enable Multi-Outcome Scoring for your domain.
  • If you use the Clipboard to assign an activity to one student from a multi-outcome scoring course and one student from a traditional course, Buzz prompts you to complete the Gradebook Settings window for each individually.
  • Auto-graded activities, like assessments and practice questions, can only be aligned with one objective, so you must choose it from a dropdown menu.
