This portal is your source for information about Ohio’s Alternate Assessment for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (AASCD).
The Spring 2016 AASCD test window is now open, February 22 – April 15. All student scores must be entered into the DEI by 11:59pm, April 15. Failure to submit scores in the DEI will result in no scores being reported. As a reminder, personnel entering student scores into the DEI must be assigned the appropriate user account (TE-Alt, TA-Alt, or SR).
The ORS will be accessible starting Wednesday, February 24. Test coordinators should use the Test Management Center in the ORS to track the completion rates of students taking the AASCD. Student scores for all AASCD tests will be reported in real-time upon test submission in the Score Reports and Retrieve Student Results tasks.
Test materials arrive today in districts. Please check your materials upon receipt, per the instructions provided in the Test Coordinator’s Manual. If you are missing boxes, call the Help Desk at email@example.com or 1-877-231-7809. Kits should be distributed to test administrators in advance of the test window.
Additional orders can be placed in TIDE through April 13 at the district level only, and are subject to ODE approval. DTCs may Pre-ID new students and update Pre-ID data through April 15. Please see the Additional Order and Pre-ID Window Guidance Document for more information.
Second rater assignments for districts have been posted in TIDE. If your district did not receive second rater assignments or if you need a replacement, please contact the Ohio Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.877.231.7809.
