  • School Address Validation

    In preparation for the delivery of the WY-ALT and WY-TOPP paper accommodated tests, all District Test Coordinators and/or Building Coordinators must verify school addresses in TIDE before placing paper orders. It is important to ensure shipping addresses are correct. School addresses can be verified using this pathway:

    1. Select "WY-TOPP Paper Orders" or “WY-ALT Paper Orders” on the TIDE Administration Details menu.
    2. From the "Orders" task menu, select "On-Time Orders" to view the "Initial Orders" form.
    3. In the "Contact Info" panel, verify shipping information, this address should reflect your school address.
      • If an address edit is needed, click "Save" if entering the information for the first time, or "Verify" if verifying or editing existing information.

    Please verify school addresses during the WY-ALT and WY-TOPP initial orders window before placing orders. The WY-ALT and WY-TOPP initial order windows are available on the Important Dates page.
