From North Carolina Department of Public Instruction:

As you log in to the Instructional Improvement System (Schoolnet), you may notice that there are more assessment items available in Math and ELA. We recently purchased an additional 55,000 assessment items for classroom level use in grades K-12.  The new items include multiple choice and open response items for both ELA and Math. You can find these items under the publisher name “FAIB from Certica Solutions, Inc.” when doing an advanced search in Item Central.
In addition, the NWEA items for Science and Social Studies were also refreshed and have been assigned a new publisher name. The new publisher name is “FAIB from Certica Solutions, Inc.” As a reminder these items (and the new items noted above) are available to ALL users in Schoolnet so they are intended for Classroom Assessments (not Benchmark Assessments).
