Managing Curriculum Maps

Copying a Curriculum Map

Existing Curriculum Maps can be copied from the Curriculum Maps list page. A Curriculum Map that is copied is automatically named using the original map’s name supplemented with a number in parenthesis, for example Map Name (1). The first copy has (1) added to the end of the name, the second copy has a (2), and so on. A copy of a copy automatically is named using the copied map’s name supplemented with a second number in parenthesis, for example Map Name (1)(1), and so on. Curriculum Map names may be changed by modifying the properties of the map.
