How do I customize or reword standard descriptions from a curriculum map?

Default standard descriptions are written by their associated standards authority. However, as the owner of a curriculum map, you can customize or reword a standard description from the map.

Student reports display both the default and custom descriptions. However, you can customize a report to only display custom descriptions.
