  • Phase II of the HSA-Alt IFT for Writing will be administered to HSA-Alt eligible students in grades 4-9, and 12 during a four-week testing window from September 26 through October 28, 2016. All HSA-Alt eligible students, as identified in their IEPs, in these grades need to participate in the IFT. The Fall 2016 Test Administration Manual and Fall 2016 Test Coordinators Manual are now available for review, posted on the www.alohahsap.org HSA-Alt web portal in the Test Coordinators/Test Administrators Resources section.

    This field test will only be administered to students online, so no paper/pencil testing materials will be available. Test Coordinators (TCs) need to check with their Test Administrators (TAs) to ensure all iPads used for testing have been updated with the most current supported operating system and secure browser. To find out which operating systems and browsers are current, please refer to the 2016-2017 HSAP System Requirements for Online Testing document, posted on the www.alohahsap.org HSA-Alt web portal in the Technology Coordinators Resources section.  If you have any questions regarding the HSA-Alt IFT for Writing, please contact Carol Anton in the Assessment Section at 808-733-4100 or by e-mail at carol_anton@notes.k12.hi.us.
