High Quality Item Banks

What is an Item Bank? 

An item bank is a collection of high quality, professional written items from which you can easily use to create a customized assessment.  

Why Use an Item Bank? 

Writing a high quality item to be used in an assessments is a very complex and time consuming process. Most teachers and administrators have had very little, if any training, for creating effective assessment questions. Formative assessments are typically short but frequently administered activities. An item bank provides administrator and teachers a pool of items they can quickly pull from to create a quality assessment. The data from these item bank created assessments would provide valuable feedback to drive instruction and monitor student achievement throughout a unit.
