School Year 2019–2020 was the first year the Hawai‘i Department of Education administered operational science tests based on the Next Generation Science Standards. Due to the unusual circumstances, testing was interrupted and stakeholders did not come together to establish achievement standards and set cut scores. However, summary reports are being provided to schools that completed some testing. This recorded webinar explains the content of these reports, how to access the reports, and the most appropriate use of the information to contribute to decision-making regarding teaching and learning in your science classrooms.
