Item Bank Items
In most cases (with the exception of things like multi-level rubrics), Illuminate is able to transfer all of your previously accessed or created content over to the new Item Bank. Have no fear, all your original content will also remain in the legacy Item Bank!
With the new Item Bank comes new item types. Notably, users will be able to create their own hotspot, drag-in-the-blank (known in some areas as drag-in-drop), as well as evidence-based selected response items.
Item Bank Assessments
Assessments created in the legacy Item Bank will remain untouched and can continue to be administered and analyzed as they have been historically. Users will now have the option to duplicate those legacy Item Bank assessments into the new Item Bank if they would like to modify the assessments (add/remove items) and publish as new assessments
When a legacy Item Bank assessment is duplicated into the new Item Bank, if that assessment contains content that existed in the legacy bank but not the new bank, then those questions will not appear on the duplicated assessment.
For example, the new Item Bank does not currently support multi-level rubrics. If you had an assessment with 10 questions, where question 10 was a constructed response question with a multi-level rubric, when that assessment is duplicated into the new Item Bank it will only have 9 questions.
Yes! Personalized Review Assignments or activities assigned to students based on assessment results to target their skills immediately following the assessment, will be available to use in support of the NEW Item Bank and Flexible assessments. Legacy Item Bank assessments will not have the option to assign PRAs at this time.
You can learn more about PRA by visiting Personalized Review Assignments (PRA).
