Locking items allows organizations to hide items in the New Item Bank from users without the ability to lock items. This feature can allow assessment creators to hide district benchmark items from teachers or other items as the organization sees fit. This lesson guides users through locking individual items and locking items at the assessment level.
Required Permission: Itembank - Lock, Unlock, & Use Locked Item
Where to Start
