  • RESOLVED Test Delivery System (TDS) Login Issue

    The login system issue is now resolved and has been tested to confirm the fix. Districts may resume testing on Thursday, April 19. Districts are encouraged to complete their English language arts (ELA) testing within the original window. For those districts that need additional time to complete testing, the statewide ELA test window has been extended by two days, through May 1.

    Those schools that wish to test during the additional two days should notify the Department by Wednesday, April 25. You may contact either Scott Bryant at (614) 728-7121 or Scott.Bryant@education.ohio.gov or Donna Williams at (614) 728-6942 or Donna.Williams@education.ohio.gov. You also may call the Office of Curriculum and Assessment at (614) 466-1317.

    For students that started but were unable to complete their test, the district will need to file a reopen request in TIDE to allow their students to resume their test. For more information regarding reopening a test refer to the Test Administration Manual Section 8.3.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

  • Practice Test Site Update for 2017-2018

    Based on feedback from the field, both online and paper practice test materials have had a major refresh for the 2017-2018 school year. Districts can now see these changes to the Practice Test Site. The 2017-2018 Practice Site Guidance Document covers these changes in detail and provides step by step directions for using the Practice Test Site.

    Practice Tests and Item Release Tests

    Updated online practice tests for all grades and subjects are available (with the exception of Physical Science). The practice tests feature item level scoring; no overall test scores are provided. Additional items have been released from spring 2015 and spring 2016 science and social studies tests and have been added to the respective item release tests on the site. The 2015 tests represent the entire test content given in spring 2015. Spring 2017 item release tests for all grades and subjects are also available (with the exception of Physical Science).

    New Student Login Feature

    Students are able to un-select the guest option on the Practice Test Site login screen and login with their first name and SSID as they do for operational tests. This optional login choice requires student information be present in TIDE. The guest login remains the default option and allows anyone (e.g., parents) to experience online testing.

    Desmos Calculators

    Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, the Ohio’s State Tests will use Desmos as the online calculator. Practice tests that have the calculator tool have been updated to provide students with the Desmos calculator. The Desmos calculators will also be available on the Student Practice Resources page of the portal.

    Paper Practice Tests

    New and updated paper practice test materials are available on the Student Practice Resources page of the portal. This includes:

    • English language arts and mathematics practice test materials
    • Revised science and social studies practice test materials
    • Scoring guides for practice materials

    Special Version Practice Tests

    Special version practice materials will be available on the Student Practice Resources page later in the fall. Districts will have access to large print practice tests for all grades and subjects starting at the end of September. Districts will have access to braille practice test materials for all grades and subjects starting at the end of November. Watch for future communication on how to request braille practice test materials.
