  • TIDE, TDS, and ORS Offline for Hardware Updates

All systems will be available again starting at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 17. Additionally, ORS will be in “read only” mode all day on Friday, July 14. This means that users will be able to go into ORS and see test scores, but they will not be able to generate PDFs of Individual Student Reports or downloadable data files.

  • Race/Ethnicity Coding

    Two race/ethnicity categories were incorrectly reported in the data posted in the Online Reporting System on April 21. Students who should have been reported as “White” were reported as “Pacific Islander” and students who should have been reported as “Pacific Islander” were reported as “Unknown.” This has now been corrected, but any reports that include the race/ethnicity variable and were run prior to May 10 will have the wrong results for these two categories and should be rerun. This issue does not affect the Individual Student Reports. Those reports do not include race/ethnicity information.

If you district has not received your paper reports, please contact the Arkansas Help Desk. The Help Desk has the UPS tracking information and can tell you who signed for the reports.

    Report templates translated into Arabic, Lao, Marshallese, Spanish, and Vietnamese have been posted in the Resources section of the Arkansas Portal under General Information. ELPA21 Achievement Level Descriptors are also available in the General Information section of the Arkansas Portal.
