  • Pending Close of In-Person Training Registration

    The Spring 2017 Wy-ALT training registration page is open and will remain open until Thursday, January 5, 2017. No additional requests for registration will be taken after registration closes.

    This year, all Spring 2017 Test Administrators (TAs) and Second Scorers (SSs) must attend one of the Wy-ALT trainings, even if they administered the test in the past. If you administered the test last year and feel comfortable doing so in 2017, you can attend one of three in-person half-day refresher trainings rather than the full day training for new TAs and SSs. If you have a conflict and cannot attend any of the in-person trainings, there is also the opportunity to attend a Refresher Training Webinar. You must attend training to administer the test.

  • Second Scorer Assignments Posted in TIDE

    Second Scorer assignments have been posted in TIDE. You can now login to TIDE and view which students will require a second scorer for the Spring 2017 administration. Click the Student Information tab, view your students as you did during the Initial Pre-ID Window, and note which students now have a ‘Y’ in the Second Scorer column. You will then be able to determine if your school needs to send a Second Scorer to training. If you need assistance, please refer to the TIDE User Guide or contact the Help Desk at wyalthelpdesk@air.org.
