Utah Test Item Pool Service (UTIPS) Core
UTIPS Core was launched in 2011 in a collaborative effort between the Utah State Office of Education (USOE) and the Utah Education Network (UEN). It is a centralized service that is highly focused on classroom assessments. It is built using HTML5 and CSS3 standards.
UTIPS Core is available to Utah Educators for use in all courses (e.g., Career and Technical Education (CTE), Social Studies, etc.). Educators may write their own items for use with their students. Assessments may also be shared across classrooms, schools, and Utah.
The UTIPS item pool was realigned to the 2013 Utah Standards for English Language Arts (ELAs) and Mathematics, however new items have not been written. ELA, Mathematics and Science teachers may consider using the Student Assessment of Growth and Excellence (SAGE) formative system which offers items written for the Utah Standards, including haptic (interactive) item types.
