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.
