Announcements

  • The paper test material initial order window for accommodated paper testing (regular print, large print, braille, IDAA paper response option cards) begins today, Tuesday, January 7 and will end on Tuesday, March 3. The initial order window guarantees materials will arrive in districts prior to the paper testing window, which begins Wednesday, April 1 and ends on Friday, May 8. Materials ordered by March 3 will arrive on Wednesday, March 18 or Wednesday, March 25 depending on your school’s closure for spring break (materials will NOT be delivered if your school is closed). Materials will continue to be available to order through Friday, May 1. However, any orders past March 3 will not be guaranteed for arrival prior to the testing window.

    Once student testing is complete, the proctor will need to transcribe student responses in the Data Entry Interface (DEI). All student responses will need to be entered into the DEI by Friday, May 15.

    The order form for paper test materials is available on the homepage of the ISAT portal. These materials must be ordered by a District Administrator (DA) or a District Coordinator (DC). If students require a paper test accommodation, the “Paper Tester” flag must be marked as “Yes” in TIDE.

  • At 6:00pm MST today Thursday, October 24, the Smarter Balanced Digital Library Resources for Teacher and the ISAT Portal TIDE sign-in systems will be integrated into a single sign on, allowing users who are logged into systems in the ISAT Portal (ORS, TDS, etc) to navigate directly to the Digital Library without having to sign in with a separate Digital Library account. Once the integration is completed, new user accounts created in TIDE will be automatically provisioned in the Digital Library. Users with both TIDE and Digital Library accounts will be able to sign-in to both systems using their TIDE username and password. Questions? Please contact the Idaho Help Desk at 1-844-560-7365 or IDHelpDesk@air.org.
