NEW! Directions to Find Scores in the AIR System 

When the previous district/school has not sent the state test scores, districts/schools may use the program to find student scores in the AIR system. Make sure the student is registered or preidentified using the SSID under the district/school IRN in TIDE. This will allow the district/school to locate the student's score in the Online Reporting System (ORS).

After the district/school logs in the ORS, the district/school should click on "Score Reports;" then choose Test: Ohio State Tests, Administration: Summer 2018 (or whatever administration is needed); and then choose the radio button "Scores for my Current Students."

The district/school should be able to click on "Search Students" at the top of the page and find the student by SSID. If this does not work, leave the page "Scores for my Current Students," click on "Reports and Files" at the top of the page and click on "Retrieve Student Results." At that point, choose Test: Ohio State Tests, Administration: Summer2018 (or whatever administration is needed); and download the file.
 

Inbox Portal Card 

A new system card has been added to the users pages for teachers/test administrators and test coordinators. Clicking on the Inbox card will take you directly to your Ohio Assessment Systems inbox, without the need to access TIDE or ORS first. This card provides a quick way to access files generated in TIDE or the Online Reporting System (ORS), such as student exports or results data files. Access the inbox using the same login credentials you use to access all other secure testing systems.
