How do I find and view assessments for a custom report?

When adding assessments to a custom report, you can select from your district's list of benchmark or formative assessments.

To more easily find an assessment in a list, you can filter, search, or change the sort order. The custom report assessment lists also display and allow you to access information about available assessments.
