Hawaii State Assessment

By Star-Advertiser staff


The state will release results of the annual Hawaii State Assessment on Thursday at the Board of Education's general meeting.

Education officials also are expected to discuss strategies for addressing problem areas and how they will help schools improve scores to meet increasing progress goals.

More than 90,000 public school students took the test in April.

Last year, 66 percent of the state's 284 public schools did not meet yearly goals under No Child Left Behind requirements, though many saw steady gains in reading and math test scores.

Here are more highlights from last year's scores:

» 34 percent of schools -- or 97 campuses -- made adequate yearly progress goals under NCLB.

» 62 percent of third-graders were proficient in reading.

» 44 percent of sixth-graders were proficient in math.

» 10th-graders saw big improvements in reading -- with 73 percent proficient, compared with 67 percent the year before -- but 34 percent showed proficiency in math.
