We have students listed in TIDE for our district who will not take the test. Should I delete them?

No, do not delete any students from TIDE. We will be providing a procedure for assigning non-participation codes to those students. If you have already deleted a student from TIDE, please wait for further instructions. You do not need to do anything at this time.

The TA screen says that Screener Pilot tests should be administered by “Registered TAs only.” What is a registered TA? How do I know if I am a registered TA?

Registered TAs are screener pilot Test Administrators who have signed up to participate in the pilot and who have received training and the Directions for Administration (DFA) prior to administering a pilot test.  The training and DFA are being finalized now, and TAs will be contacted soon (as of 1/30/17).

What is the portal?

The Nebraska ELPA21 portal acts as the gateway to all your Nebraska ELPA21 assessment information and AIR systems. The portal provides links and resources to help students and educators take full advantage of AIR systems and understand the Nebraska ELPA21 assessment.
