The HIDOE requires all students in grades 7, 8 and 11 to participate in the Hawaii State Assessment Program.  Students will be scheduled between Feb. 20th and May 31st.  Due to the HIDOE adapting the SBA, students are expected to spend at least one full week of ELA (English/Language Arts) course time completing the English test and another week of Math time completing the Math test.  Students are provided additional time if needed. 


Currently, there are students at all grade levels that have not reported to complete their tests.  Students who have not finished should check with their teachers or Ms. DeRego in W304 to schedule a time when they are available.


The scores from these tests will be a large part of KHI's score on STRIVE-HI under the new Strategic Plan and the ESSA Plan.

Parents who have specific questions about mandatory testing can contact Ms. Bea DeRego at 305-7354. 


ACT College and Career State Assessment Administration

ACT Plus, Grade 11:  


Nearly 90 juniors attended the State ACT session on February 27th!  Students should receive notice of their scores in 6-8 weeks.  Scores are now available from Ms. McCAuley in the counselor's office.


 ACT scores are accepted by colleges and universities for admissions placement, and is used by athletics organizations such as the NCAA.   Additionally, the test provides a career planning component to assist students in planning their education goals.


Should you take advantage of the 4 free score reports on Pre-test Session Day?  Free isn't always your best choice!  Read this blog to determine what's best for you!




The PSAT was administered this year on Wednesday, October 25, at Kahuku High & Intermediate.  Students should receive their results in December before the winter break.  Students will also receive a paper copy from the school along with their original test booklet.  Students will need their test ID number to register for the free Khan Academy test prep service.


Students can also find more information at the College Board PSAT website. 


Students who believe they have a possible qualifying score for the NMSQT can download the NMSQT Guide at right to learn about the process for selection of finalists and scholars.






STAR Screening for 7th - 9th Grade Students


All students in grades 7-9 participate in STAR Math & Reading screening to determine areas of strength and curriculum support needed.  Parents of students needing targeted support will be contacted. 





Hawaii State Science Assessment - Grade 8


The HSA Science exam is required for all 8th grade students.  This year and next (2017-18 & 2018-19), students will be taking an adapted test as the state bridges between the old standards and the new Next Gen Science standards. The test will be administered in January and again at the end of semester 2, in May.  Students will receive the highest of the two scores.




Students who are members of our community and are home-schooled are eligible to participate in HIDOE mandated or some of the optional tests the school offers - for example the ACT and SBA in the spring.  

Any parent who has questions regarding scheduling their students for one of these tests can contact Ms. Bea DeRego at 305-7354.  Please leave a
local contact number if you leave a message (I do not have long distance calling on the test room phone).  You can also email: bea_derego@notes.k12.hi.us

To ensure we have time to request your child be added to DOE testing, please contact Ms. DeRego at lease 60 days in advance of the scheduled test date. 






End of Course Exams:


The End-of-Course (EOC) exams measure a student's level of proficiency for the standards and benchmarks assigned to the course. The Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 EOC Exams measure proficiency for the Hawaii Common Core Standards. The Biology I EOC Exam measures proficiency for the Hawaii Content and Performance Standards, and the new Next Gen standards.  The test window is April 23th through May 31st, 2017, and students are scheduled to take the test with the rest of their class.

The Biology End of Course Exam is mandatory for all students taking the Biology course at any grade level.
