Managing Your Objective Statements
You can add, edit, re-order and archive objective statements. Click on the Admin menu and choose Manage Objectives to get started:
1) Adding new objectives
To add a new objective, first choose a subject from the list.
Next, click the New Objective button.
You'll need to choose the Year Group or Period your objective relates to. This might be a year group, a key stage, a Development Matters age band or something else.
Once you've selected your Period, you can enter a Strand, the Objective Text and mark whether the objective is a Key Objective or not. Visibility Start refers to visibility on the main objectives screen
When you're finished, click the OK or OK add another button (or Cancel to discard what you've entered).
2) Editing existing objectives
You can edit an existing objective if you need to:
- Archive (replaces the old 'Delete Objective' function)
- Set as a Key Objective
- Modify visibility dates
- Move to a period
- Move to a strand
Editing an existing objective will preserve any data already assessed against it on the Objective Grids.
First choose your subject from the list then highlight the relevant objective statement. This will open up a 'menu' of editing tools on the right-hand side of your screen:
You are able to select more than one objective using the 'Shift' and 'Ctrl' keys.
Select the relevant editing tool, change as required, then click OK when you're done, or Cancel to discard your changes:
All the statements that have been edited will be colour coded until you select Save all Changes.
The colours reflect the following changes:
