After you have added the item to the district item bank, you are ready to begin defining the match list item. A match list question is a drag and drop item type that gives the student a list of stimuli, each corresponding to a blank response location. The student must move a set of predetermined answer choices to the blank response locations. There are two sections that are used to define the match list answer:

    •  Basic
    •  Answer Key

  3. Click the green Add button to the right of Stimulus List once for every item in the question.
  4. Next, type the name of each item.
  5. Click the Add button to the right of Possible Responses once for every item that you've added to the question.
