  • New Inbox Portal Card

    A new system card has been added to the users pages for Teachers/Test Administrators and Test Coordinators. Clicking on the Inbox card will take you directly to your Ohio Assessment Systems Inbox, without the need to access TIDE or ORS first. This card provides a quick way to access files generated in TIDE or ORS, such as student exports or results data files. Access the Inbox using your same login credentials which are used to access all other secure testing systems.
