NOTE: If you do not see a particular Question Type in the selection list, it is because items have not yet been published to the assessment item bank or access to the Question Type has not been turned ON by your district.

To search for items in a specific Unit, click the Select a Unit drop-down and click the desired unit.

NOTE: If you do not see a particular Unit in the selection list, it is because items for that unit have not yet been published in the assessment item bank.

The Keyword Search field can be used if you'd like to search by a specific word or phrase in the item name, or if you know the exact item name. This applies to both parent resources (i.e. reading passages, graphics) and individual questions (i.e. E03.06B.1273.TRS).

Type in a keyword and click the magnifying glass icon (or Search button) to search for items.

Once you've clicked Search to find items, parent resource items such as reading passages, images, or diagrams will be listed before the related questions. You can view or hide the related questions using the corresponding link on the item.

This automatically selects all items in the results and adds them to your assessment. You will see each item title bar highlighted in GREEN when selected.
