Managing Your Objective Statements

Updated 1 year ago by Kelly Venables

You can add, edit, re-order and delete objective statements. Click on the Admin menu and choose Manage Objectives to get started:

Admin-Manage Objectives

1) Adding new objectives

To add a new objective, first choose a subject from the drop-down list.

Tip: If you need to add a new subject, choose Add New Subject... from the bottom of the list.
choose-subject

Next, click the Add Objective button.

You'll need to choose the Period your objective relates to. This might be a year group, a key stage, a Development Matters age band or something else.

Tip: If you need a new period adding to your list, let us know.

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.

When you're finished, click the Add button (or Cancel to discard what you've entered).

2) Editing existing objectives 

You can edit an existing objective if you need to change which Period it relates to, its Strand, the Objective Text or its status as a Key Objective.

Editing an existing objective will preserve any data already assessed against it on the Objective Grids.

First choose your subject from the drop-down list:

choose-subject

Click Edit next to the objective you want to change:

edit-objective

Make the changes you want to make, then click Save when you're done, or Cancel to discard your changes:

edit-your-objective

3) Re-ordering objectives

Insight automatically orders your objectives first by Period and then by any Strands. You can then further adjust the order of your objectives within those groupings.

Choose a subject from the drop-down list to start:

choose-subject

Click Move next to an objective to move it:

move-objective

The objective you're moving will be highlighted green. Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move the objective up or down, then click Enter to save its new position.

4) Deleting objectives

You can delete objectives if you don't need to see them any more.

NOTE: If you delete an objective, any data entered against that objective will also be removed.

First choose a subject:

choose-subject

Click Delete next to the objective you want to remove:

delete-objective

Click the red Delete button to confirm that you want to remove the objective:
