How do I create custom course outcome names for students?

As an instructor, you can choose to enable the Student Learning Mastery Gradebook (if allowed by your admin) and let students to see Learning Mastery scores on their Grades page. All Outcomes in the course appear in the student view. However, some official outcome names may be difficult for students to understand, so when creating outcomes at the course level, you have the option to create a custom, or more friendly name, to appear for students. This separate name field allows you to keep both the official name of the outcome as well as create a friendlier version that is more helpful for students.

Note: Creating a custom name is a course permission. If you have access, you will only be able to create friendly names for outcomes you create within your course. You cannot create custom names for outcomes created at the account level.
