ACT College and Career State Assessment Administration


ACT Plus, Grade 11:  
 

 

ACT REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED WITH OVERWHELMING RESPONSE FROM KHI JUNIORS!  STUDENTS WHO HAVE SIGNED UP NEED TO ENSURE THEY WILL BE PRESENT ON BOTH FEBRUARY 21ST FOR THE PRE-TESTING SESSION AND FEBRUARY 27TH, THE MANDATED TEST DATE.  STUDENTS WHO MISS THE 21ST PRE-TEST SESSION FOR ANY REASON, WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO TEST ON THE 27TH.

  

 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.

 

The paper and pencil ACT will be given again this year.  Students will be scheduled for testing in groups of about 20 students in the computer labs and other classrooms.  The complete test takes between 4.5 - 5 hours, so students will be able to go to high school lunch (cafe will hold late lunch if needed).  Students have to be present for the February 21st Advisory Session in the computer labs to complete the pretest requirements.  Any student who misses this session, for any reason, will not be allowed to test on the 27th.

SMARTER BALANCED ASSESSMENT (SBA) – 2017-18

 

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 approximately one week of ELA course time completing the English test and another week of Math time completing the Math test.  Students are provided additional time if needed. 

 

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.
