When creating tests in Aware, teachers have the opportunity to use item banks for pre-made test questions or sections. You can find more information about Item Banks here.
Adding from an Item Bank
To add an item from an item bank to an Aware test Click the blue + icon to add a new question within the test. A small window will appear that allows you to choose to create a new item or search the item bank.
You can choose either individual questions or resources that include multiple questions.
You may search for questions by specific standard or browse all standards. Add questions or resources to your Question Cart by clicking Add Question. Once you have added the questions you want, click Add to Test to finalize the adding process.
Note: Use the Select All Standards option if you plan to search for complete unit tests or released STAAR assessments in the next step.
Questions will be added to the test in the order they are selected. To rearrange questions, use the small up and down arrows attached to the question. To delete a question, select the small trash can icon.
To sort question results choose from the available filters on the right side of the window:
