The Test Delivery System (TA Interface and Student Interface) are now available for the 2018-19 school year. Students can log into the Student Interface using the same Secure Browser that was used for testing last year. However, a new version will be available for download beginning next week. Users can create test sessions through the TA Interface by logging into the Test Administration icon. As a reminder, the TA Certification Course must be taken by all users prior to administering any test under the Test Administration icon.
The TA certification flag in TIDE has been reset for the 2018-19 school year. Once the course is completed this school year, the flag will be set to "Yes" for each user. Before Interim testing can begin, students must be loaded into TIDE. Once students are loaded in TIDE and the TA Certification flag is completed, the Interim Assessments may be taken by students. Icons for all systems and the TA Certification Course can be accessed via the ELA/Literacy & Math Assessments, Science & End of Course Assessments, or Alternate Assessment ELA & Math pages. Quick guides for all systems will become available throughout the month; announcements will be posted as each resource is updated. In the meantime, online versions of user guides can be found in the "Help" button within each system.
