Creating Customized Assessments Using Embedded Touchstone Questions

Creating a customized assessment is quick and easy. You can put Touchstone questions from related standards together, use the additional questions, or even add your own questions.

To do this, access the Touchstone Blueprints in the Resources widget to determine which Touchstone questions you would like to embed in your assessment. Then, navigate to the Assessment Builder widget to begin creating your assessment.  Enter the question IDs for the Touchstone questions and any other questions you would like to use on this assessment. Review and Publish your assessment as you normally would do.

Remember, Touchstone questions can only be used 1 time by a teacher (District Created Touchstone or embedded within a teacher created assessment).
