This portal is your source for information about Ohio’s Alternate Assessment for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (AASCD).
The Spring 2017 AASCD test window is now open, February 21 – April 14. All student scores must be entered into the DEI by 11:59pm, April 14. 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, TA, or SR).
The Plan and Manage Testing, Test Completion Rates and Test Status Code Reports tasks have moved from the Test Management Center in the Online Reporting System (ORS) to the Monitoring Test Progress task in the Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE). Test coordinators should use these reports to track the completion rates of students taking the AASCD.
The ORS is now accessible. Student scores for all AASCD tests will be reported in real-time upon test submission in the Score Reports and Retrieve Student Results tasks in ORS.
An Online Refresher Training PowerPoint is now available for download on the Alternate Assessment Portal. This narrated presentation contains an overview of information regarding design of the assessment, changes for the spring 2017 administration, administering the assessment, starting points, entering student scores, and more. This is an optional resource for all test administrators for the AASCD. To download this resource, search for “Online Refresher Training” in the Test Administration Resources section of the portal.
