After you have added the item to the district item bank, you are ready to begin defining the number line plot item. A number line plot question asks students to plot points, segments, rays, etc. on an interactive number line in response to a stimulus. There are two sections that are used to define the number line plot answer:

    •  Basic
    •  Answer Key
