The management of learning standards available for local assessments in Aware is done in Forethought. (For customers without Forethought, please contact email@example.com for issues related to standards management in Aware.)
When new sets of learning standards need to be added to Aware, a district-level Forethought manager can do so using the following steps. (Aware managers who do not work in Forethought often should check with Forethought managers before doing anything to a course.)
1. In the Forethought Manage tab, Manage Learning Standards and choose the course that needs updated standards in Aware.
2. In the course's Options tab, check and uncheck the appropriate state courses from the list. The list can be narrowed down by typing in the search bar. (Note: a district can choose to have more than one set of standards from the list selected. All selected standard sets will be available to Aware users for test building for the course.)
3. Click the Select Courses button. This saves the associated of the standards with the course.
Remember that updating the standards for Aware (directions shown above) will not automatically update curriculum in the Forethought course. Refer to the sections in Forethought about updating curriculum.
