  • 2019-2020 TIDE Monitoring Test Progress Closing

    Districts have until July 31, 2020 to run the various reports available in the Monitoring Test Progress task in TIDE for the 2019-2020 school year. These reports provide information about students who tested online and those whose responses were entered in the Data Entry Interface (DEI).

    Two reports provide district-wide views of testing: the Test Status Code Report and the Test Completion Rates Report.

    • Test Status Code Report. This report provides a list of every test a student started, had data entry started or was eligible to take for a given assessment program (e.g., OST, AASCD).
    • Test Completion Rates Report. This report provides student counts and the percentages of tests started and completed for a given assessment program.

    Districts that would like a record of tests administered online or entered in the DEI may run one or both reports prior to July 31, 2020 for tests administered during the 2019-2020 school year.

    For additional information on Monitoring Test Progress, including details of all available reports and how to run them, please consult the TIDE User Guide.
