Creating Standards

Note: The information in this article only applies to institutions integrated with System Administration. If your institution is not integrated with System Administration and you would like further information please contact your Watermark Client Success Manager (CSM).

The Standards tab is used to create and view standards.  Standards are concise and specific descriptions of an organization’s expectations of and goals for its students. Standards can be aligned with rubrics to allow correlations to be made between these defined expectations and student performance.

4. In the Set Title text field, enter a title for the standard set


5. In the Set Abbreviation text field, enter an abbreviation for the set
