     3. Now click on Unit 1 Learning Goals and then click on Learning
        Goal 1a. (If you click on the arrow, you will see more of the menu
        choices)




     4. Each of the questions from the library has a unique item number.
        For example, we see item 1.2.1.20.
           a. The first number indicates the Unit number. 1.2.1.20
           b. For the second number: 1.2.1.20
                  i. 1 indicates this item is organized by assessment type
                 ii. 2 indicates that this item is organized by EM learning
                     goal
           c. For the third number 1.2.1.20
                  i. If previous number was a 1:
                         1. means it is an oral assessment
                         2. means it’s a slate assessment item
                         3. means it’s a written assessment item
                         4. means it’s an alternative assessment item
                 ii. If previous number was a 2:
                         1. means it’s an “a” learning goal
                         2. means it’s a “b” learning goal
                         3. means it’s a “c” learning goal

                                    4. means it’s a “d” learning goal


               d. 1.2.1.20
               The last number gives the item number in sequence. When a
               unit number changes, the item numbers recount from 1

     5. Creating a Worksheet
                                                                b
                                                                /




               a. Click on items from the library window on the left to the
                  blank worksheet on the right. If you click and drag an item
                  more than once, there will be more than one question on
                  the worksheet.
               b. Click on the Preview icon to see the question that will appear
                  on the worksheet.

                                Dynamic item




                                Static Item




     6. The content library contains two different types of items.
          a. Dynamic-each time a worksheet is printed, it is possible to
              generate a unique iteration of those items (values will
              change, problem will be the same)
          b. Static- values stay the same; however, distractors can be
              shuffled to create unique worksheets.
