  • TIDE, TDS, and ORS Offline for Hardware Updates

    TIDE, TDS, and ORS will be unavailable from 8 p.m. CT on Friday, July 14 until 8 a.m. CT on Monday, July 17 for hardware updates. All systems will be available again starting at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 17. Additionally, ORS will be in “read only” mode all day on Friday, July 14. This means that users will be able to go into ORS and see test scores, but they will not be able to generate PDFs of Individual Student Reports or downloadable data files.

  • Submitting ELPA21 Tests 

    If you have any concerns regarding an ELPA21 test or a speaking response recording, please have the student PAUSE the test. Contact the Help Desk for assistance resolving the issue.  Do not submit the test until the issue is resolved. If students are recording speaking responses but there is no sound during the playback of the recordings, please verify that the mute button on the headset has not been accidently engaged.
