    A final Teacher Hand Scoring System (THSS) training is scheduled for February 26, 2018, and will be held at the CSDE, 450 Columbus Boulevard, Hartford.  This training is appropriate for beginners to the THSS; or new teachers, district and school administrators who will be hand scoring or training hand scorers of the interim assessments.  In this session, participants will review the scoring process and related scoring materials (rubrics, exemplars, and training guides) that can then be applied to the scoring of specific IABs administered in your classrooms.  Participants will be led through a brief hand-scoring training of Reading and Writing, with a concluding presentation that connects results to the AIR Ways Reporting System and next steps for improving instruction.  Participants must have a Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE) user account and must bring a laptop.  Please contact Deirdre Ducharme or Cristi Alberino if you have any questions.
