  • Accessibility Features for the AASCD Independent Field Test Now Available

    To assist districts with preparations for the AASCD 2.0 Independent Field Test, AIR expanded the Test Settings feature in TIDE to include AASCD. This feature allows districts to set AASCD test settings in TIDE prior to testing. Districts can access this feature under the Student Information task in TIDE to ensure all accessibility features are appropriately marked for AASCD students taking the Independent Field Test.

    As a reminder, Text-To-Speech (TTS) is on for all AASCD tests and cannot be turned off. Administrators should allow the TTS to play first, to ensure the TTS reads any “hidden” text.

    Districts can access the TA Practice and Student Practice Sites and refer to the Practice Test Guidance document on the portal for more information about the available test settings and tools. The test settings and tools set in TIDE will be available for students when they log in to take the Independent Field Test.

    For directions on uploading or manually editing student test settings, refer to the TIDE User Guide, located on the portal.

  • Chrome Version 72 Now Supported

    Google released a new dot version of ChromeOS v72, version 72.0.3626.117. AIR has confirmed this version resolved the previously identified issue that prevented users from accessing AIR testing sites. If your district had already upgraded to v72, please ensure you upgrade to this or a later dot version of 72. If your district has not upgraded to v72, you may do so at your discretion, ensuring you upgrade to this or a later dot version of 72.

  • Chrome Version 72 – Unable to Access AIR Testing Sites

    Google released a new Chrome version on Friday and AIR has identified an issue with Chrome version 72 that prevents users from accessing AIR testing sites. Google and AIR are working on a fix. Chromebooks on ChromeOS v71 or earlier are not affected. If you are on a version of ChromeOS earlier than 72, do not upgrade your devices to ChromeOS v72.

    The Chrome version 72 issue affects the following:

    • Secure student tests accessed via the Chrome secure test app, which includes OELPA, ELPA21 Screener and OGT online tests
    • Data Entry Interface (DEI) tests accessed via the Chrome browser, which includes OELPA, ELPA21 Screener and OGT paper tests entered via the DEI
    • Practice tests accessed via the Chrome browser

    If your district has already upgraded devices to Chrome version 72, another platform will need to be used to test until a fix is released by Google.

    For DEI tests and practice tests accessed via Chrome browser, it is recommended that districts use a different commercial browser (e.g., Firefox or Edge) to access DEI tests and practice tests.

    Once the fix is released by Google and AIR confirms that this issue is fixed, we will notify districts that they may upgrade to 72.

    If you have any questions about this information, please contact the Ohio Help Desk at ohhelpdesk@air.org or 877-231-7809.
