6 OAKS System Components Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) Student demographic information collected Student test settings entered Test Delivery System (TDS): TA Interface Test sessions created Students approved to test _______________ Test Delivery System (TDS): Student Interface Students log into tests Students take tests Online Reporting System (ORS) Test results reported Item Tracking System (ITS) Test questions created reviewed, and edited Questions assembled into tests T EST A DMINISTRATORS

7 TA Interface  Administer online tests, track progress, and manage students testing in your session  Adjust test settings for individual students before they are approved to start the test  Approve and submit print requests from students Student Interface  Secure online test that must be accessed via a secure browser  General Education Student Interface  Braille Interface Overview of Test Delivery System T EST A DMINISTRATORS

12 Create and Manage Test Sessions  List of available tests automatically displays upon logging in and remains on screen while monitoring students  Select the tests for inclusion in the session and click [Start Session]  System generates a Session ID that students will use to log in  Test sessions automatically expire upon TA logout  Sessions cannot be resumed  Students may resume a paused test in any new test session that includes the applicable test subject and grade  Example: TA creates a test session for students on Tuesday. To resume testing on Wednesday, the TA will create another test session for students to resume testing TA Interface (cont’d) T EST A DMINISTRATORS
