  • TIDE is opening for the 2018-19 school year on August 7th. As part of the system roll-over for the new school year, all user passwords have been reset. All users will need to complete the steps below to create a new password.

    1. From the West Virginia portal, select the Test Administrators card and navigate to the TIDE login page. Select the " Request a new one for this school year" link just below the login prompt.
    2. Enter the email address you use for all WVDE assessment systems and select the ‘Submit’ button.
    3. An email (from AIRAST-DoNotReply@airast.org ) which contains a link to reset your password will be sent to the email address associated with the account. This link must be accessed within 15 minutes or you will need to restart the password reset process.
    4. Within 15 minutes, select the link and follow the on-screen prompts to create a new password. Press the ‘Submit’ button. (After 15 minutes the link will expire, and a new one must be requested.)

    Returning users who access TIDE from a new device or browser, or who have cleared the cache on a previously-used browser, will receive an emailed code after entering their username and password via the secure login prompt. If the “Enter Code” page appears, an authentication code will automatically be sent to your email address. You must enter this code into the “Enter Emailed Code” field and select the ‘Submit’ button within five minutes of receiving the authentication code email.

    All users who had access to AIR systems in 2017-2018 will continue to have access this year, after the above procedure has been followed to reset their password.  If a user should no longer have an account, their district or school coordinator should follow the process in the TIDE user guide, found in the Resources section of the West Virginia portal, to remove their system access. Please contact the West Virginia Assessment Help Desk at 844.560.7367or wvhelpdesk@air.org with any questions, or if you need additional assistance with your password.
