HSA scores provide an indication of whether students are making progress toward mastery of state content standards.

State Testing at Momilani

During the following month, the SBAC, or Smarter Balanced testing will be held for grades 3-6. Information regarding the testing was sent home earlier this year. There will be 4 consecutive days of testing for Math, and then following  the week after, 4 consecutive days of testing for Reading.


According to the Hawaii DOE:

Hawaii is among 21 member states (plus the U.S. Virgin Islands) leading a Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium that developed a new assessment system to measure whether students are meeting the Common Core​​ for Mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy (ELA), and are on-track for college and career readiness.

Smarter Balanced assessments offer students:

  • More complex problems and challenge them to support their answers with explanations and evidence.

  • The ability to mark test items for review, take notes on a digital notepad, use calculators and other tools in certain sections, and also pause the test.
