After you have added the item to the district item bank, you are ready to begin defining the order list item. An order list question is a drag and drop type item that asks the student to re-sort a list of predetermined answer choices, in response to a stimulus. There are two sections that are used to define the order list answer:

    •  Basic
    •  Answer Key
