  • TIDE Downtime

    The Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) will close for the 2019-2020 school year on Friday, May 29, 2020. After May 29, student information will not be available for updates. If you would like to save your existing TIDE rosters, you will need to download them before this scheduled downtime begins. Existing rosters will not be available once TIDE opens for the 2020-2021 school year. For additional information on how to save existing rosters, please refer to the TIDE User Guide.

    Note: Existing rosters will remain available in AIRWays and the Online Reporting System but cannot be edited and new rosters cannot be created during this scheduled downtime. Any anticipated users who will need access to view scores during the summer months need to be added in TIDE before May 29, 2020. Please contact the Wyoming Help Desk at (888) 897-8024 or wyohelpdesk@air.org with any questions.

  • WY-TOPP & WY-ALT: Testing & Accountability 

    The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) has canceled WY-ALT and WY-TOPP summative testing for the school year 2019-20, and no formal accountability determinations will be made for the 2019-20 school year.

    The U.S. Department of Education (USED) granted Wyoming a waiver on March 20 from certain federal assessment and accountability requirements in light of the widespread school closures due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The WDE is taking public comment on this waiver through April 20, 2020.

    Contact Jessica Steinbrenner at 307-777-8568 or jessica.steinbrenner@wyo.gov with any questions on assessments and Sean McInerney at 307-777-8752 or sean.mcinerney@wyo.gov with any questions on accountability.
