Teacher Scoring Application

Recent Announcements

  • New Digital Library resources are now available on the ISAT portal. You may access these resources in the ELA/Literacy & Math Assessments Resources section under the Digital Library sub-folder.

    Added September 20, 2016
  • The TIDE User Guide is now available in the Resources section of the ELA/Literacy & Math Assessments, Science (Grades 5 and 7) & End of Course (EOC), and Alternate Assessments (ELA/Math) under the AIR Online Systems – User Guides sub-folder. Please keep in mind all students may be added to TIDE at this time. However, details on how to select a test subject for EOC Science tests will be provided later in the school year.

    Please be aware of changes to the LEP Status and English Language Proficiency fields on the TIDE User Interface. These changes will be reflected in the Add Students Page, in the Student Demographic Section and the Student Upload file layout.

    The LEP status, currently configured to accept Yes/No will be updated to accept the following Codes:  L1, LE, EW, X1, X2, FL, No, SO, similar to those submitted in the state ISEE report. The English Language Proficiency field will be changed to a Yes/No field.

    If you need to add students or submit a student upload file before this change is completed, please continue to enter Yes or No in the LEP Status field.  The English Language Proficiency is configured as a ‘required’ field where users can enter No until TIDE is configured to accept Yes/No only. We will add an announcement as soon as this change is implemented in TIDE.

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.
