The August JUMP newsletter ( ) reported that the Smarter Tide Quick Start Guide would be posted on August 26. 

That Guide is now online at the following link:    

It is also posted on the Measured Progress Smarter portal.

The Guide will take you through the steps to review and update TIDE users, roles, and permissions.

  • The review period is August 26-September 16
  • Superintendents and System Test Coordinators, please follow the detailed instructions in the Guide to update and cleanup your system and school users during this window.  This includes deleting users no longer employed in your system or school, adding new users, and possibly changing permissions.

On September 19, all previous and new TIDE users will receive e-mail notification to refresh their passwords. 

  • Page 3 of the Quick Start Guide details that process.  

Please forward this information to others in your system or schools who need to be included.

If you need assistance, please contact the Measured Progress Montana Help Desk, 1-888-792-2741, or OPI/MontCAS 406-444-3511 or 406-444-3656.

Thank you.  Have a great weekend.
