What are Goals?

The Goals feature is designed to track student activities. As an institutional administrator, you will add the goals that you want your students to achieve. As students log their hours, their data will be calculated toward the goals you have set for them.


Building Goals

1
To start building your goals, click on the Goals tab in your institutional account and click on the Add Goal button.

2
The Goals screen is where you will enter all of the necessary information for the goal you want to set for your students.

3
The Name of the Goal should describe the goal that's being added (see example below).

4
In each of the following fields, select the option that is appropriate for the Goal you are adding.   
Note: Required fields will have an asterisk beside the name of that field. 

Note: Goals don't have to be set up by course. If no course is selected, the goal will calculate for all courses in all placements.

Note: When tracking goals for specific Activity Types, those are multi-select so you can select more than one. 

The Goal Type and Show Warnings fields will already have values selected by default.  If you want a different selection than what is added in those fields, make sure to select it before saving the Goal.
5
If you select "Yes" to  Show Warnings, this will alert the students when they're close to over exceeding their goal.

6
When you select "Yes" to Show Warnings, you will need to enter when you want the warnings to be given to the student.  After you've added this information, click "  Save".

Goals are logged hours not approved hours.

Warning alerts the student when they're about to over exceed their goal.
