The next set of fields are all optional, depending on how specific or generic you would like your search to be. Select the Course Version (if applicable) from the drop down. Then, choose the Item Bank (Unit Assessment Item or Formative Item) and/or Item Type (Multiple Choice, Short Constructed Response, Griddable, etc.). The options displayed for each of these drop-downs is directly dependent on what is available for the combination of already selected search filters (item collection(s), grade, subject, and course).
