TIDE Changes for 2020-2021
User accounts have historically been purged from TIDE during the year-to-year system rollover. This year user accounts will not be purged from the system. DTCs will no longer be required to add users back in to the system in the fall. DTCs will now manage users permission to administer tests by test group (ELPA Screener, Summative tests, and/or Interim tests) using a new feature in TIDE for 2020-21. More information about the new process for setting test administration permissions by test group will be provided in the 2020-21 TIDE User Guide. As a best practice to ensure security, DTCs should delete users who no longer need access to the assessment systems. All users will be required to reset their password when logging in for the first time for the 2020-21 school year.
