Smarter Balance Assessment (SBA)
Students in grades 3 - 6 will take the Online Hawai'i State Reading and Mathematics Assessments. In addition, students in grade 4 will take the Online Hawai'i State Science Assessments. Students will take these assessments over several days during the school year. Families will be informed of the specific dates before assessments begin.
The purpose of the assessments is to provide families and teachers with information about the extent to which the individual students have met selected Hawai'i Common Core Standards in Reading, Mathematics, and Science. These assessments will also assist teachers to better support students academic strengths and needs. A "Parent Information Booklet" is available with information about the assessments and what families can do to help their student's prepare.
