Reminder for Student Test Settings
It is highly recommended that RISE test settings (e.g., accommodations like color contrast are set in TIDE before a student begins a test. If changes need to be made to test settings after a student begins a test, they need to be made in the TA Interface (using the “eyeball” icon). Changes to test settings made in TIDE will not carry over to tests that have already been started. More details can be found on pages 5 and 6 of the Test Administration Manual.
