The high-quality Item Banks accessible via Galileo are the clear choice for educators seeking the wide array of items needed to engage students in complex thinking to promote college and career readiness. Item Banks are aligned to individual State Standards for grades K-12 in math, English language arts (ELA), and science as well as Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Client districts and charters benefit from:
The ATI Secure and Community Item Banks contain more than 90,000 items in K-12 mathematics, ELA, and science (including more than 16,000 TE items). Approximately 800 more items are added each month by ATI’s experts. ATI Item Banks contain 19 different item types including selected-response, constructed-response, and TE items as well as performance-based assessment tasks. Experience in the ATI Sample Items assessment some of the rigorous, innovative, and engaging Galileo items that encourage use and development of higher order thinking skills.
ATI has a partnership with Key Data Systems (KDS) to provide the Inspect Item Bank within Galileo. Learn more about the ATI and KDS partnership. The Inspect Item Bank includes more than 50,000 items in K-12 mathematics, ELA, and science as well as 5,800 items for history grades 5 through high school. The Inspect Item Bank provides access to 14 item types including all item types currently used on statewide tests. Experience in the Inspect Sample Items assessment some of the rigorous Inspect items that assess skills critical to college and career readiness.
Galileo provides access to a variety of powerful metadata for items such as standard, DOK level, scoring rules, answer rationales, and IRT item parameters including difficulty, discrimination, and pseudo guessing. Metadata can be viewed along with item content to support the development of assessments and the interpretation of student results. Metadata can also be used to refine item searches.
Unlike systems delivering static item banks validated with a single student sample at a single point in time, items in the ATI and Inspect item banks are psychometrically validated on an ongoing basis. This makes it possible to ensure that standards-aligned assessments built in Galileo are reliable and valid, and that they can be effectively used to measure the acquisition of skills, mastery of standards, progress, and readiness for statewide assessments for students at all performance levels.
Participation in ATI’s Community Assessment and Item Banking (CAIB) initiative provides access to additional Item Banks created by educators in your state in diverse content areas such as social studies, art, music, physical education, and foreign language. ATI provides participants with professional development that supports educators in producing high-quality standards-aligned items. More than 22,000 items have been created nationwide as part of this initiative. Available Item Banks vary by state.
