After you have added the item to the district item bank, you are ready to begin defining the image association item. An image association question is drag and drop item type that shows the student an image, containing blank response locations on the image. The student must move a predetermined set of answer choices into the preset blank locations. There are two sections that are used to define the image association answer:

    •  Basic
    •  Answer Key
