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 2019-2020” administration of TIDE and check the Discrepancy Resolution Task to resolve any records that require resolution. Review the Discrepancy Resolution 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. 9, 2019 – Jan. 29, 2020. Review the Rescores and Verifications Guidance document for instructions.
 
A district can submit a rescore request 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 a verification request 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 who took a paper test.
 

Student Results Data Files 

Districts’ results for students who took the fall 2019 grade 3 English language arts tests online will be posted in the Online Reporting System (ORS) on Dec. 9. Students whose paper scorable documents were returned to DRC according to the instructions in the manual will be posted Dec. 16* in ORS. Students whose paper scorable documents were returned to DRC late will be posted Dec. 23 in ORS. Records that require discrepancy resolution will be reported after the records are resolved in TIDE.
