Updates to Online Test Administrator User Guide, Online Reporting System User Guide, and TIDE User Guide

The following clarifying updates have been made to the OAKS System User Guides:
  • Online Test Administrator User Guide. A statement has been added to page 40 warning users that if they log into a Practice Test as a Guest User on an iPad with iOS 7, they will not be able to select a grade from the drop-down menu. Therefore, students who want to taking a Practice Test on an iPad with iOS 7 should log into the Practice Test using their first name and SSID. Students who must log in as a Guest should take the Practice Test on a different platform.
  • TIDE User Guide. Additional information about creating Chromebook accounts has been added to page 28 clarifying that if a student moves into a school for which Chromebook accounts have been enabled a Chromebook account will automatically be created for that student. A statement was added to page 32 warnings users that TIDE does not maintain a record of which students have secure Chromebook accounts. Users are advised that if they cannot remember if a secure Chromebook account was created for a student they should either create the account again (which will not change the account if it already exists) or call the OAKS Help Desk for verification.
  • Online Reporting User Guide. A statement was added to page xx explaining that if a student has a resident district that is different from the student’s attending district, both the attending district and the resident district can create rosters in the Online Reporting System that include the student. The attending district will only be able to access an attending student’s results if the student is added to a roster in the Online Reporting System and the user navigates through the Online Reporting System by clicking on the roster.
All updated User Guides are posted in the Resources section of the OAKS Portal and on the Oregon Department of Education web site (http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?=391).
