NEW! Ohio’s State Tests – English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science

11/30/2018

Fall 2018 Grade 3 English Language Arts Administration 

NEW! Discrepancy Resolution Window  

Districts will have an opportunity to resolve discrepant records in TIDE. District test coordinators must sign in to the “Ohio State Tests 2018-2019” administration of TIDE and check the Discrepancy Resolution Task to resolve any records that require resolution. Review the guidance document for instructions. Districts must resolve all discrepant records. Unresolved records will not be reported.
 

NEW! Rescore and Verification Window  

Districts will have an opportunity to submit rescore and verification requests in TIDE from Dec. 10, 2018 – Jan. 30, 2019. Review the guidance document for instructions.  
 
A district can submit rescore requests in TIDE if it believes a student’s score does not reflect expected student achievement. There is a $25 charge for processing rescore requests unless the rescore results in a score change.
 
A district can submit verification requests if the following applies:
(1)   the district believes the student tested and did not receive a score, or
(2)   the district believes a score was incorrectly assigned to a student (this verification type only applies to students who took paper tests).
 
There is no charge for a verification request.
 

Student Results Data Files 

Districts’ results for students who took the fall 2018 grade 3 English language arts tests online will be posted in the Online Reporting System (ORS) on Dec. 10. Results for students whose scorable documents were returned to DRC according to the instructions in the manual will be posted Dec. 17 in ORS. Records that require discrepancy resolution will be reported after the records are resolved in TIDE.
