  • In an effort to improve users’ understanding of the data provided in the Online Reporting System (ORS), AIR began updating the table titles in ORS to make them more user-friendly by implementing the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) guidelines. This effort began with the release of ORS on August 7 for the 2017-18 school year and has now been finalized. Users will see these new titles on all pages in ORS. The Idaho Assessment Systems Manual – AIR Systems User Guide will be updated with these changes upon our next release (planned for this winter).
