    TIDE is the system used to edit and add students for pre-identification, add users (Test Administrators and Second Scorers), and review material orders. It will open on November 30 for the Initial Pre-ID Window. Existing users will receive an email on November 29 at 5:00 p.m. with a temporary password and must create a new password the next time they log into TIDE. At this time, Test Coordinators will also be able to add users. When a new user account is created, an activation email will be sent to the user. The email will include a temporary password and instructions about setting up a new user account.  The TIDE User Management Guidance Document on the Portal includes more information on TIDE user accounts.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Wy-ALT Help Desk at 1.888.897.8024 or
