  • Tuesday, May 25 - IREAD-3 Summer 2021 Test Window Opens Today!

    The IREAD-3 Summer 2021 test window is open now and continues through Friday, July 16 for both online and paper testing. The Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) must correctly reflect all demographic and accommodations data for participating students ahead of all practice and operational test sessions. Test Administrators (TAs) must use the 2020-2021 Fall/Spring/Summer IREAD-3 Test Administrator’s Manual (TAM) to administer the IREAD-3 retest to all students participating in this summer. The IREAD-3 Secure Segment 1 script must be used with all students except those students using the Hard of Hearing test form. Additionally, TAs must use the IREAD-3 Read Aloud Scripts for Accommodated Paper-and-Pencil Assessments for any students whose formal plan requires a human reader and a paper test. Both scripts are available to Corporation Test Coordinators (CTCs), Nonpublic School Test Coordinators (NPSTCs), and School Test Coordinators (STCs) for download from the Secure Inbox in TIDE. CTCs, NPSTCs, and STCs are responsible for ensuring TAs have access the IREAD-3 TAM and the appropriate script(s) before any testing begins.
