  1. Select Passage Questions. Select the "Domain(s)" and "Standard(s)" you want to assess. You can also choose to filter by "Question Type" and "Passage Category."

  1. You will then see a list of passages to assign based on the Domain, Standard, Question Type, and Passage Category selected.
  1. You can sort the results by "Alphabetical," "Newest," "Question Count," "Word Count," "Lexile Level," "Question Type," or "Favorites."
