Announcements

  • AIR Name Changed to Cambium Assessment, Inc. (CAI)

    Due to a recent acquisition, American Institutes for Research (AIR) has been re-named to Cambium Assessment Inc. (CAI). As a result, this portal and related resources have been updated so that references to AIR have been updated to reference CAI. CAI will continue to provide the TDS, DEI, TIDE, and Reporting systems and also its existing Help Desk contact channels, and there will be no interruptions in services.

     Additionally, URLs ending in airast.org have been transitioned to URLs ending in cambiumast.com. If you have portal resources bookmarked on your web browser or linked elsewhere, URLs ending in airast.org will continue to re-direct to the newest URLs for several months. However, we encourage our users to update their bookmarks to the newest cambiumast.com URL at their earliest convenience.

  • ELPT Results Now Available

  • ELPT and Participation Reports are Open

    ELPT summative tests and participation reports are now open. The ELPT summative test window ends on March 13, 2020

    There are two significant changes in the 2019-2020 ELPT administration:

    • The K-1 Writing Supplement has been eliminated.
    • To order paper, large print, and braille materials for Summative tests, please contact the LA ELPT Help Desk. Whereas in previous years, users had to place orders in TIDE, Help Desk agents will be able to gather details and place orders on your behalf. Some orders may require state approval before they are processed, so please place your orders for materials as soon as possible.

    Please review the ELPT Summative Test Administration Manual and ELPS and ELPT TA User Guide for guidance on administering ELPT tests. It is strongly recommended that all Test Administrators administer the ELPT Online Tools Training to their students prior to administering the summative test so the Test Administrators and students can become familiar with the technology prior to summative test administration.

    Contact the Louisiana ELPT Help Desk if you encounter any issues administering ELPT tests.

  • ELPT Paper and Braille Materials to Arrive in Districts by January 20, 2020

    Initial orders consisting of paper, large print, and braille materials for the ELPT will arrive in districts by January 20, 2020. This delivery will include materials ordered through the Help Desk by November 22, 2019.

    An additional order window will open January 22, 2020 where the Help Desk can intake orders that were not submitted by the November 22, 2019 cut-off date.

    Please note that the ELPT no longer uses the K-1 Writing Supplement. The Writing domain will consist of all machine-scored items for Kindergarten and Grade 1. The updated Writing domain results will still provide you with the same data and information as in previous years.

    If materials do not arrive by these dates, please contact the ELPT Help Desk.

  • TIDE Will Be Offline for Updates

    TIDE will be offline for updates from Thursday, October 24, 4:00 p.m. CT through Sunday, October 27, 10:00 p.m. CT. The online ELPS and the AIRWays Reporting System will be available while TIDE is offline. Districts and schools can administer the ELPS to students while TIDE is offline, if those students were added to TIDE prior to the TIDE shutdown.
