  • January 27, 2020 - Update to Supported Operating Systems and Technical Guides 

    Compatibility testing is complete for both iOS 13.3 and Chrome OS 79. The American Institutes for Research (AIR) granted official support to both OS versions for online testing. These OS versions have been added to the Indiana Assessment Portal’s Supported Browsers and Secure Browsers pages.
    A new Configurations for iOS/iPadOS Guide may also be accessed on the portal. This guide addresses VoiceOver and Voice Control features present in iOS 11.x, 12.x, and 13.x. Schools using these updated versions of iOS must follow the instructions in the Configurations for iOS/iPadOS Guide to ensure these features are disabled prior to administering online tests.

  • December 10, 2019 - TESTING ISSUE RESOLVED

    Students impacted by the IIEP/TIDE data flow issue may resume testing. The following options exist in consideration of this action. 
    Schools should choose from the following options as they resume testing:
    ISTEP+ ELA Retest:
    Option 1:
    •    Schools may continue with the current test form and the assessment will be scored as implemented. If students were impacted by the discrepancy, communication to the parent is needed for their awareness.
    Option 2:
    •    Schools may move to an alternative test form and retest students for their test attempt. Contact Mary Williams for more information regarding this option (mwilliams@doe.in.gov).  

    TIDE currently reflects accommodations designated to students in IIEP as of December 8, 2019. Please confirm all student accommodations prior to completing test administrations.
    We apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused. Please contact Karen Davies, kdavies@doe.in.gov, with any questions specific to accommodations.
