  • TIDE 11 and Mandatory Password Resets

    We are happy to announce that TIDE 11 will launch on Monday, August 27. The updated version of TIDE brings a few enhancements while maintaining the familiar look and feel of previous versions.

    New features of TIDE 11:

    • Participation Reports: Now more accessible, with better search functionality
    • Improved Rosters:  Now allows users to define start and end dates, as well as the students and users associated with each roster

    In addition, we will be introducing 2-factor authentication for TIDE and ORS in order to further enhance the security of student information. This means that users will need to respond to an email challenge the first time they log in from a new device. All users will need to reset their passwords and complete this challenge when they log into TIDE or ORS after Sunday, August 26.

    Please contact the Nebraska ELPA21 Helpdesk if you have questions about TIDE 11 and its improved functionality.

  • 2018-19 Secure Browsers

    The 2018-2019 Secure Browsers are now available on the Secure Browser page of the Nebraska ELPA21 Portal. An updated Secure Browser Installation Guide is also available. Users are able to administer the ELPA21 Practice Tests and the ELPA21 Screener using either the 2017-2018 Secure Browser or the new 2018-2019 Secure Browser until December 31, 2018. After December 31, 2018 users will be required to use the 2018-2019 Secure Browser. The ELPA21 Practice Tests and Screener will no longer be accessible using the 2017-2018 Secure Browser.

    Updates to the iOS Secure Browser and the Chrome OS Secure Browser are also available. Most iPads and Chromebooks are set up to automatically install updates. If your iPad or Chromebook does not automatically install updates and you have one of these Secure Browser apps installed, you will need to download the updates to these Secure Browser apps. A link to download the apps for use on iPads and Chromebooks where they are not already installed is available on the Secure Browser page of the Nebraska ELPA21 Portal.

    The 2018-2019 Linux Secure Browser is also now available.
