  • The Understanding Student's Score Reports parent and family brochures for ISAT ELA & Math, Science & End-of-Course, and Alternate Assessments for the 2018-2019 school year have been added to the ELA/Literacy & Math Assessments, the Science/EOC Assessments, and the Alternate Assessments ELA & Math Resources section in the Reporting sub-folder. They are intended to provide guidance on understanding the score report, answer a few frequently asked questions about the test, and offer direction on where to go to find additional resources. These brochures are offered in English and in Spanish.

  • The Enhanced AIRWays Reporting Pilot is now accessible as a portal card on the ELA/Literacy & Math assessment page. In addition to integrating the Summative assessments into the AIRWays system, there will be several additional features. These features include the availability of ISRs, the ability to breakdown reports by demographics and the addition of a reporting data feature which allows users to see their reports as they existed on any given date. The pilot system will be available until Friday, July 19. The site can be entered by using your AIR Systems login. The AIRWays Reporting Online User Guide is available by clicking the Help button. This user guide provides complete information on all AIRWays Reporting functions. Please contact the Help Desk with any questions. Feedback on this new system is highly valuable as it provides insight into how the system can be improved. Please use the link on the home page of the portal (coming next week) to access the form where you can provide your comments.

  • The use of text to speech on Chromebooks is not resolved.  The AIR team and Google support recognize the Google voice packs are not connecting with the Secure Browser required for testing. The AIR team has been working with a top Google Engineer and we are assured this matter is their top priority.

    We understand some districts may be holding off on testing until this issue is resolved, but unfortunately we can’t determine when a solution will be identified so we encourage you not to delay testing if you have other devices on which you can test students requiring text to speech. We have heard that uninstalling and reinstalling the secure browser is an effective workaround for other states. While this is not an ideal solution, we want to make you aware of this option.

  • AIR is aware that districts continue to experience intermittent issues with Text-to-Speech not functioning as expected. AIR and Google are actively working on further investigating and fixing this issue. If your school is impacted by this, you may submit a ticket to Google via the Admin Console. If you submit a ticket, please call the Idaho Help Desk and provide this information so that AIR can use it to further troubleshoot. We do not have an estimated timeline when this issue will be fixed. To avoid delays on testing, have students who require Text-to-Speech on their test use a different Operating System, if possible. We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
