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.
Test materials arrived yesterday in districts. Please check your materials, per the instructions provided in the Test Coordinator’s Manual. If you are missing boxes, call the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-877-231-7809. Kits should be distributed to test administrators in advance of the test window opening on February 21.
Additional orders can be placed in TIDE through April 12 at the district level only, and are subject to ODE approval. DTCs may Pre-ID new students and update Pre-ID data through April 14. Please see the Additional Order and Pre-ID Window Guidance Document for more information.
