After you have added the item to the district item bank, you are ready to begin defining the math formula item. A math formula question is a text entry type item, using a calculator interface, that asks the student to provide an answer to a math stimulus. There are two sections that are used to define the math formula answer:

  •  Basic
  • Validation
