SBA Testing Information

At Kealakehe students are given the Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA).The SBA in mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy (ELA) are aligned to the Hawaii Common Core Standards, and designed to measure whether students are "on track" for readiness in college and/or career. SBA replaced the Hawaii State Assessment in math and reading. These are mandatory assessments given to students in grades 3-8 and 11.


As a school we strive to do our best to prepare our students to be successful when taking this test.  For more information and resources on SBA click HERE.
