The Test Information Delivery Engine (TIDE) will open for the 2013-14 school year next Tuesday, October 1. At that time, authorized DSAs and DTSAs may begin creating user accounts for their district. TIDE manages users across all OAKS systems, including the Test Delivery System and Online Reporting System. In addition, TIDE allows districts to enter student settings and place orders for paper-based Writing tests. An updated 2013-14 TIDE User Guide will also be posted to http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?=391 by October 1 to provide a step-by-step approach to using TIDE. Your Regional ESD Partner is also available to assist you in using TIDE.
