Metadata in Surpass is divided into tag groups and tag values. Tag values are the metadata labels that are attached to items. Tag groups are themed containers for tag values. There are three default tag groups: Learning Outcomes, Units, and Keywords. You can create custom tag groups in Setup > Subjects. Tags are subject specific.
This article explains how to assign tag values to an item and includes information on how to set up Marked Learning Outcomes.

Setting up Marked Learning Outcomes
Marked Learning Outcomes lets markers give a numerical score to each tag value rather than the item as a whole. This allows for greater specificity in marking. Marked Learning Outcomes can be added to any human-marked item.
First, ensure the Marking Type is set to Human in Edit Settings.
Add your tag values in the Edit Learning Outcomes dialog. Select Add Marked Learning Outcomes and give each tag value’s total mark in the Mark field.
The item’s Mark field updates to the total of each Marked Learning Outcome. This cannot edited on the item’s Edit screen. To change the item’s mark, you must edit the Marked Learning Outcomes’ Mark values.
