  • The Test Delivery System (TA Interface and Student Interface) is now available for the 2019-20 school year. Students may access Interim ELA, Math, and Science tests by logging into the Student Interface using the latest version of the Secure Browser. The deadline to download the new Secure Browser was August 30. Users can create test sessions through the TA Interface by clicking on the Test Administration icon available on the ELA/Literacy & Math Assessments or Science & End of Course Assessments pages. As a reminder, the TA Certification Course must be taken by all users prior to administering any Interim tests. The TA certification flag in TIDE has been reset for the 2019-20 school year. Once the course is completed this school year, the flag will be set to "Yes" in TIDE for each user. Additionally, before Interim testing can begin, students must be loaded into TIDE. Once students are loaded into TIDE and the TA Certification course has been completed, the Interim Assessments may be taken.
