  • CTAA ELA for Grade 3 and 4 Clarification: To ensure that the appropriate test form aligns with student communication needs, a Verbal or Non-Verbal test form must be selected for all Grade 3 and 4 students in TIDE Test Settings prior to CTAA testing.  Some recently submitted CTAA tests were administered even though a Verbal or Non-Verbal form was not selected in TIDE.  AIR will be contacting districts who may have administered an ELA test to students in Grades 3 or 4, and did not indicate a Verbal or Non-Verbal form selection.  As of May 7, if a Teacher Test Administrator does not make a selection for grades 3 or 4 students, a Verbal test form will automatically be assigned.
