  • TA Certification

    The Test Administrator (TA) Certification course is now available for the 2018–2019 online test administrations of the North Dakota State Assessment (NDSA). All users who plan to administer the 2018–2019 online NDSA must take the TA Certification course, regardless of their user role in TIDE.  Please note that if you have taken the TA Certification course during a previous school year, you are required to complete the TA Certification course for the 2018–2019 school year. Failure to complete the TA Certification course will result in the user’s inability to access and administer the 2018–2019 online test administration of the NDSA in the Test Administration Interface until the TA Certification Course has been successfully completed.
