  • AIR Name Changed to Cambium Assessment, Inc. (CAI)

    Due to a recent acquisition, American Institutes for Research (AIR) has been re-named to Cambium Assessment Inc. (CAI). As a result, this portal and related resources have been updated so that references to AIR have been updated to reference CAI. CAI will continue to provide the TDS, DEI, TIDE, and Reporting systems and also its existing Help Desk contact channels, and there will be no interruptions in services.

    Additionally, URLs ending in airast.org have been transitioned to URLs ending in cambiumast.com. If you have portal resources bookmarked on your web browser or linked elsewhere, URLs ending in airast.org will continue to re-direct to the newest URLs for several months. However, we encourage our users to update their bookmarks to the newest cambiumast.com URL at their earliest convenience.

  • Windows 7 No Longer Supported Beyond 2019-20 School Year

    Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and 2008 RS Operating Systems will no longer be supported for online test administration after the 2019-20 school year.

    We recommend that any districts using devices with these operating systems to please upgrade to the latest version of Windows before the 2020-21 school year. This change will be in effect for the screener opening during the first week of August. A list of supported systems is available on the Secure Browsers page. This information will also be published in NE’s 2020-21 Operating System Support Plan for Test Delivery System.

    If you have any questions, please contact the NE ELPA21 Help Desk or refer to the resources for Technology Coordinators.

  • ELPA21 Summative Tests and Participation Reports are Open

    ELPA21 Summative tests and participation reports are now open. The ELPA21 summative test window ends on March 13, 2020

    There are two significant changes in the 2019-20 ELPA21 Summative administration:

    • The K-1 Writing Supplement has been eliminated.
    • To order paper, large print, and braille materials for Summative tests, please contact the NE ELPA21 Help Desk. Whereas in previous years, users had to place orders in TIDE, Help Desk agents will be able to gather details and place orders on your behalf. Some orders may require state approval before they are processed, so please place your orders for materials as soon as possible.

    The ELP21 Summative test window ends on March 13, 2020. Please review the ELPA21 Summative Test Administration Manual and TA User Guide under portal resources for guidance on administering ELPA21 tests. It is strongly recommended that all Test Administrators administer the ELPA21 Practice Test to their students prior to administering the summative test so the Test Administrators and students can become familiar with the technology prior to summative test administration.

    Contact the Nebraska ELPA21 Help Desk if you encounter any issues administering ELPA21 tests.
