  • As part of the system roll-over for the new school year all user passwords have been cleared. When TIDE opens on August 16, all users will need to create a new password by selecting the “First Time Login This School Year” directions on the TIDE login page. All user  accounts which had access to AIR systems in 2015-2016 will continue to have access this year, although users are required to reset their password.  If a user should no longer have an account their district or school coordinator should follow the process in the TIDE user guide to remove their system access.

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.
