Creating Shared Passages (AMP)

Shared Passage is an item available in AMP only. Assessment authors can add one or more excerpts, followed by one or more questions. Use Shared Passage to provide further textual information for students to reference while answering the subsequent questions. Students will see all the excerpts and questions on one page when accessing the Shared Passage within an assessment.

To add a Shared Passage:

  1. Select Shared Passage from the Question drop-down menu.
  2. Click in an Excerpt field and write or add the passage.
  3. Use the Rich Text Editor which displays when you click into the Question Setup field to apply formatting such as bold and italics, or to insert images or tables. Move your pointer over the individual icons to access the tooltip explaining the function of each button.
  4. Click the Excerpt button to add additional passages.

Once you’ve added the passages, click the Question button to add one or more questions to the passage. The passage or passages will display to the student taking the test with the associated questions.

Shared passages display with the passage and the questions together.
