SY20-21 TIDE and TA Certification Course - Now Available

Aug 5, 2020

TIDE and the Online TA Certification Course are now available for the 2020-2021 school year.

Current TIDE users will receive an email from with instructions on how to reset your password for the 2020-21 administration. All future emails from this site will be sent from

CAI requires a two-factor authentication process. When you log in to TIDE for the first time, you will be asked to reset your password and a code will be sent to your email immediately. You will have 15 minutes to use the code before it expires and a new code will need to be requested.

The TA Certification Course has been updated for the new school year. All users will need to take this course in order to administer any 2020-21 tests. However, Interim assessments will not be available for student testing until August 24, 2020.

Before Interim assessments can begin, students must be loaded into TIDE. Once students are loaded in TIDE and the test proctor has completed the 2020-21 TA Certification Course, students may begin taking ELA/Math/Science Interim Assessments beginning on August 24, 2020.

Icons for all systems can be accessed via the ELA/Literacy & Math Assessments, Science Assessments, or Idaho Alternate Assessments pages.
