NEW! Discrepant Records for 2019 Spring OELPA Kindergarten and Grade 1 Writing Supplements 

Districts that have discrepant test records in TIDE for the Spring 2019 OELPA administration received an email indicating that action is required. The discrepancies are for the Kindergarten and Grade 1 Writing Supplemental Test Booklets and students’ online writing domain records. The vendor has received the paper writing supplement booklet(s) but is unable to associate them with the corresponding online record(s). Corrective action is required. Unresolved records will negatively impact each student’s writing score and possibly the overall proficiency determination.

District test coordinators are required to resolve test records that do not match Pre-ID records. If a student has more than one test opportunity for the same test, or if the school or district association does not match the Pre-ID record in TIDE, the student's record will require resolution. Although districts may resolve discrepant records into November; districts should resolve discrepant records before the EMIS OELPA data collection window closes.

To resolve the discrepant records, district test coordinators must sign into the "Ohio State Tests 2018-2019" administration in TIDE and check the Discrepancy Resolution task. Review the Discrepancy Resolution Guidance document for instructions.

Scores for Spring 2019 Administration  

Scores for the 2019 OELPA Spring Administration will be available in ORS starting May 13. Printed Family Reports are due the week of June 10.
