  • Student Test Settings are now available in TIDE. At this time, designated supports and accommodations can be added to students’ test records individually using the Student Details page or in mass upload via the Upload Test Settings and Tools page. This task is the second step of getting students ready to test in the AIR systems, after adding your students to TIDE.

    This feature has a brand new appearance this year. This page now groups test settings in order to assist users in finding the appropriate tools.

  • All systems (TIDE, TDS – Test Administration, Assessment Viewing Application, THSS, AIR Ways, ORS) are now available for the 2017-18 school year. The TA Certification Course has been updated for the new school year. All users will need to take this course for 2017-18 in order to administer any tests under the Test Administration icon. Before Interim testing can begin, students must be loaded into TIDE and the new Secure Browser must be downloaded. Once students are loaded in TIDE, the Interim Assessments may be taken. Please note, the Student Test Settings feature in TIDE is unavailable at this time. We anticipate opening this section by the end of next week and will post another announcement when it is available.

    Practice and Training tests are currently available for ISAT ELA and Math tests through the Practice & Training Test Administration icon.

    Icons for all systems can be accessed via the ELA/Literacy & Math Assessments, Science & End of Course Assessments, or Alternate Assessment ELA & Math pages. Quick guides and user manuals for all systems will be available soon. In the meantime, online versions of user guides can be found in the “Help” button within each system. Please be aware that TAs will not have access to THSS or AIR Ways this year.
