Acuity Item Banks are now available in Engrade! However, they have been renamed. Note the names of the item banks listed below along with their descriptions. These items are loaded by grade bands to foster ease of use. For example, one bank will be named "ELA 3-5, New Stds" which means English Language Arts, 3rd to 5th grade, from the bank called New Standards.

These ELA and Math items are our newest items and reflect the shift to a new generation of standards that require a more evidence-centered approach to assessment.
