  • Participation Reports:

    Due to a known issue in TIDE’s Plan and Manage Testing/Test Completion Report, participation data is being generated incorrectly. SDDOE recommends that users do not run these reports until the issue is resolved. AIR will provide an update on the portal 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 March will be Friday, March 24 at 11:59 pm ET until Sunday, March 26 at 11pm ET. Users can resume accessing all active, online systems on Monday, March 27.

    Please refer to the Important Dates section of the portal for specific information for the future dates.

  • Participation Reports:

    When TE users attempt to retrieve Test Completion Reports from TIDE they are unable to export data to view the information. Please note this only affects TE roles in TIDE. AIR is aware of the issue and will post an update as soon as it is available.
