DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LOAD ANY Cambium PRELIM Files into OnDataSuite
DO not attempt to load any Cambium TELPAS or TELPAS Alt file into this section if it has “_SF_” in the title. These are SDR location files and you are attempting to load them in the wrong file center area!
ATTENTION: Districts have notified us that Cambium will be placing the state agreed upon data file formatted test results directly into the District Test Coordinator’s Cambium inbox and the naming convention should appear named as something similar to the example below:
District Test Coordinator’s Cambium inbox is named 1321_EOC_CCCDDD_XXXXXXXXISD_v1.txt
Please consult with the Texas Student Assessment Program 2021-22 Calendar of Events to determine the date the file will be released in your TIDE folder here
It CANNOT be a file you generated via the Cambium rep
