Create a Sort List Item Bank Question

*Note: this is a district-only feature.

After you have added the item to the district item bank, you are ready to begin defining the sort list item.  A sort list question is a drag and drop type question that asks the student to move a selection of predetermined answer choices from one column to another column in a new order. There are two sections that are used to define the sort list answer:

    •  Basic
    •  Answer Key
