Adding Assessment Options to previously assigned standards

Should you wish to add the Assessment Option to standards previously assigned to students this is achieved by selection options as below, as part of assigning the curriculum plan above.

Updating currently assigned standards

This will add the option to current standards. It will not create new standards nor will it impact on results that may have already been entered.
