    Some options in the ORS Test Event filters are not functioning as expected. The affected filters are Braille, Streamline Mode, and Text-to-Speech and affects all applicable reports. The other filter options are functioning as expected.

    Please continue to keep these accommodations updated in TIDE since the data collected will display accurately when the issue is resolved. AIR will provide an update as soon as possible.

  • In an effort to streamline the system maintenance, AIR will be taking online systems offline once per month. This will allow AIR to systematically roll out updates. Urgent updates and updates that won’t cause disruption to live systems may still occur outside of the maintenance window. The scheduled maintenance window for September will be Friday, September 22 at 10:59 pm CT until Sunday, September 25 at 10 pm CT. Users can resume accessing all active, online systems on Monday, September 26. Please refer to the Important Dates section of the portal for specific information for the future dates.
