  • THSS and AIR Ways Training Webinar


    Wednesday, February 1, 2017, from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

    Who should attend?

    This THSS and AIR Ways Training Webinar is intended for district- and school-level users who intend to administer the interim assessments.

    What’s it all about?

    This webinar will provide an overview of how to navigate the Teacher Hand Scoring System (THSS) and the new AIR Ways Reporting system. The THSS allows Scorers to score item responses that require human scoring on both Interim Comprehensive Assessment (ICA) and the Interim Assessment Block (IAB). AIR Ways provides student performance reports for interim assessments. This system offers more reporting features and greater access to item level data that is not available through the Online Reporting System (ORS). AIR Ways provides access to item level data in addition to individual and group data.
