Top FAQs

  • What is TIDE?

    TIDE stands for “Test Information Distribution Engine”. The TIDE system provides administrators with the tools to add and manage users and students participating in the ELA and Math ISAT assessments.

  • What is TDS?

    TDS stands for “Test Delivery System”. It is the online testing system that will be used for the practice tests, training tests, optional interim assessments and the summative assessments.

  • When will the Math/ELA ICA scores appear in ORS?

    Scores will appear immediately in ORS only after students complete both the CAT and PT tests in each subject. Students must click “submit” in TDS and Scorers (SC, TA, and TE roles in TIDE) must score all student responses for each of those tests in a given subject in THSS before scores will appear in ORS.
