Summer 2013 OGT

4/1/2013

TIDE will be open April 29 – May 3 for districts to indicate their intent to participate in the Summer 2013 OGT administration. Test materials will only be sent to districts that indicate their intent. If you think you will be conducting summer testing, but are unsure, please confirm participation. If you learn that your district will not offer summer testing after you have confirmed participation in TIDE, you can cancel your order by calling DRC (1-877-231-7809, press 1) no later than May 27. TIDE will be preloaded with test booklets and answer documents based on the number of students who tested in each district in Summer 2012, with a minimum of 10 answer documents and 10 test booklets in each subject per district. During the April 29 – May 3 window to confirm participation, districts can decrease the preloaded quantities, but no increases in the preloaded quantities will be approved. Additional materials and special versions (large-print and Braille test booklets and language translation scripts) can be ordered during the additional order window: May 27 – June 25. TIDE will accept Pre-ID files for Summer 2013 OGT testing from May 13 – 17. Students should pre-identified under the district and school where their results should be sent. The Summer 2013 OGT will be administered June 17 – June 30. Summer testing is optional. Participating schools and districts do not need to offer all five tests.
