If need to restart tests immediately or reopen a test that was submitted in error, school logs request for resolution in the TIDE Appeals system. McCaslin contacts SDE. 3.BREACH: High level of severity  Significant threat to the validity of the test.  EXAMPLE: Copying, photographing, removing test stimuli or items; using test information for instructional purposes; release of secure materials  REPORTING: Report to McCaslin IMMEDIATELY/phones in report to SDE 2 3 Levels of Incident Severity/Reporting
