District Objective Library Management

Where can I go to see my district objectives?

As a System Admin, you can navigate to Tools > School Management > Grade Settings. On this page, you will see two new tabs available. By selecting the District Objectives tab you will be able to view all the parent objectives and learning objectives you created during import:

The folder icon (see above screenshot) is used to represent parent objectives.  By clicking into different folders you can navigate through your hierarchy:

When you get to the lowest level, you will see the icons change to a target (see screenshot below). These are your learning objectives that can be associated with individual graded items:

You can use the breadcrumbs along the top of this view to navigate back up your tree and explore any branch you created.

Am I able to add objectives in this view?

Yes.  Above the list of existing objectives, you will see a button to add.  Based on where you are in your district hierarchy, you will have the option to add either a parent objective or a learning objective.

Above: Add a Parent Objective for a specific level or organization. Below: Add a Learning Objective at the lowest level of your district mastery hierarchy.

Clicking this button will launch a modal where you can input all the necessary information for an objective:

Similar to the import file, title and external ID are required.  Type and parent ID are being determined by where you are in your tree when you select the Add button.

Note: Pay attention to where you add an objective in the hierarchy.  They cannot be moved from one parent objective to another.

Am I able to edit objectives?

You can edit an objective at any time by clicking the gear icon to the right of the objective listing and selecting Edit.

Clicking this icon will launch a modal populated with the existing information about an objective. From here you can make any necessary changes then click Save to complete.

Note: External ID must be unique.  You cannot change the external ID to any existing external ID in your library.

Can I remove an objective from my library?

Yes, however, how it is removed will depend on whether or not it has been aligned to any materials.

If a learning objective has not been aligned to any materials, it can be deleted and completely removed from your library.  If a parent objective is being removed, and no learning objectives under it have been aligned to any materials, the parents objective and all objectives under it can be deleted and completely removed from your library.

If a learning objective has been aligned to one or more materials, it will be archived.  An archived objective will remain aligned to materials and available in reports, but cannot be aligned to any future materials.

If a parent objective contains one or more learning objectives that have been aligned to materials, the branch for every aligned learning objective will be archived.  All non-aligned objectives will be deleted.

Can I remove an entire library?

Yes, you can delete the district objective library and re-import an updated or new library, if required. You may choose to use this option in cases where the initial library import was incorrect (due to an inconsistent learning objectives hierarchy) and a new import is required. 

You can delete the district library by clicking Delete Library from the District Objectives area:

Note: Deleting a district objective library cannot be undone. Follow the steps outlined in District Objective Library Import to re-import the objective library.

Why do I see two tabs for objectives in my Grade Settings area?

District Mastery is a solution that can be enabled by building within your organization.  For that reason, you may find yourself with some buildings using District Mastery, while others are still on the previously existing mastery tool.

You will manage your objectives for buildings using District Mastery in the District Objectives tab.  If you have custom objectives you would like your other buildings to have access too, you can create and manage those in your Learning Objectives tab.  The two tabs appear similar but are not connected in any way.

If you would like to turn off the previous mastery tool for buildings not yet using District Mastery, please reach out districtmastery@schoology.com.
