Welcome Test Coordinators!


  • March 12, 2020 — Test Delivery System Available on April 10 and May 1
    OSPI and Cambium Assessment Inc. (CAI) have worked together to eliminate the need for the Friday April 10 and Friday May 1 Test Delivery System (TDS) downtimes for deployment of the science tests. Districts may use these two days for administering the Training and Practice tests, the Interim assessments, or the Summative assessments, if desired.

  • December 2, 2019 – Apple iPad OS 13 is Now Supported

    Apple iPad OS 13 is now supported for online testing. Please ensure devices are updated to the latest version before testing to avoid issues encountered that were fixed by Apple in iPad OS 13.2.2+. Also, Apple recently introduced a new feature called Voice Control that must be disabled before testing. This feature is turned off by default. Guidance on how to disable this feature, if enabled, will be made available in the Technical Information folder under the Technology Coordinators card.

  • AIR System Down Time: November 8–12

    The TIDE and TDS systems will be unavailable from Friday, November 8 at 5 pm to Tuesday, November 12 at 5 am. AIR will be applying updates to TIDE over the holiday weekend to align student test settings with the GTSA. Owing to the anticipate changes, it is encouraged for all paused tests to be completed and submitted by November 8. All systems are expected to be available on Tuesday, November 12, for testing to resume.

    Additionally, the TIDE template that is used for bulk uploads of student test settings will be updated during this time. We ask that districts and schools hold any bulk uploads of student test settings until November 12. After this update, the template will need to be downloaded again for bulk uploads.
