Search All Components

The Search All Components page allows access to TEKS RS (TCMPC) components as well as your district's customized, published versions of components. Users have the option to search for both TEKS RS and District components at the same time, or District components only.

Alternatively, select the Assessment Items option if you wish to view published items from the TEKS RS (TCMPC) and/or District item collections. This is essentially a preview of the assessment items offered within the Assessment Center tool. Note that if your district has elected to turn either of these item collections off in the Assessment Center, the items will not appear on the Search All Components page either.

To locate published, district-created content only (and exclude any TEKS RS materials from the results), select the View District Content Only checkbox. Note that some districts may have little to no content published for user view, meaning the use of this filter will yield few, if any, results.

If you selected Components as the Search Type, you will receive a list of component documents in the search results. Provided the View District Content Only filter was not selected (and your district actually has published content available), both TEKS RS and district-created components will appear in the results. Click on the title of any component to view it.

Since both TEKS RS and District components may appear in the results list together, a TEKS RS (TCMPC) icon is included to the right of all TEKS RS component titles. District-created components do not have an icon to the right of their titles.

The Component Type for each item is indicated on the right side of every row in the search results. The Grade Level and Course (if applicable) are also specified in this area.
