The Curriculum Matrix is available to all users by default and provides a quick visual and numerical inventory of where curriculum tags are assigned to courses. The Matrix reflects only those curriculum tags that have been assigned to a course through the Course Setup page, not all tags applied to events, gradebook assessments, etc.
Curriculum Matrix does not reflect relationships between mapped tags. It just shows those tags directly assigned to a course. If context-based linkages are enabled, the Matrix will display these tags. The Curriculum Matrix can be a useful tool to help identify where curriculum objectives might be under or over-represented. The information stored in the Curriculum Matrix can be downloaded as a csv file.
