  • This week, a change in the “Test Settings and Tools” Upload file was discovered. Specifically, the Text-to-Speech options available in the ELA-PT and Math drop-downs in the Test Settings and Tools upload template changed upon the Summative go-live this week. At this time, AIR is actively looking into this matter and working to resolve it as quickly as possible. However, we are requesting all districts and schools do not download the current “Test Settings and Tools” template in TIDE or upload any Text-to-Speech settings until this issue is resolved. AIR will post an announcement tomorrow morning with an update to this situation. Thank you for your patience in this matter.

  • The Summative online test window for ISAT (ELA, Math, Science) and Grades 3-8 Alternate Assessments (ELA & Math) opens today, Monday, March 18 and will close on Friday, May 24. You may access these tests for administration by selecting the Test Administration card located on the Assessment pages. Students may test in the Idaho Secure Browser versions 10.4 or 10.5 for Windows and Linux or 10.6 for MacOSX.

    As a reminder, prior to students taking the Alternate Assessments, the Learner Characteristic Inventory (LCI) must be taken in the Data Entry Interface for each student. To access the Data Entry Interface, this portal card can be found on the Assessment pages. The Online Reporting System is also now available to view student scores once all test components (both the CAT and PT for ISAT ELA/Math tests) are submitted and handscoring is complete (within 10 days of submission of student tests).
