In Edsby, courses may be associated with a set of standards. In Ontario, a very specific set of courses and associated standards is defined for every grade level and subject.

Setting up your mapping
Designating which standards should be associated with a course is easy:
- In Twine, navigate to Scheduling > Courses:
- Select a subject area, and then highlight a Course from the second column:
- Enter the Ontario ministry course code in the Short Name field:
For high school classes, the ministry provides a set of explicit courses and course codes. CourseIDs should be entered exactly as provided.
For elementary classes the ministry does not provide explicit codes. We have created a set of codes using a convention of: ON.<grade>.<subject>
For example, 5th grade mathematics is ON.5.Math and 8th grade mathematics is ON.8.Math. Across elementary subject areas, grade levels of 1-8 are supported.
The full list of 5th grade course codes, as an example, are as follows:
