How do I create a passage in a district item bank as an admin?

As a Mastery Connect district administrator (admin) or district item author, you can create a passage in either the district item bank or the district teacher item bank. A passage most often contains text, images, tables, or other reference material that accompanies an item. You can use the passage editor to enter text and other content, preview the passage, and save the passage.

You can then add a passage as a feature to any item type. You can learn more about creating an item in the district item bank as an admin.
