  • The Smarter Balanced ELA/Literacy and Mathematics Assessment results may be used to assist the University of Hawaii (UH) System of community colleges and universities in determining student readiness for college-level English and mathematics. At the end of the adaptive portions of the Smarter Balanced Grade 11 ELA/Literacy and Mathematics Assessments, students will be asked if they would like to release their results to the UH System. If a student intends to submit an application to the UH System, they may authorize the release of their results by marking the circle that indicates their understanding that their Smarter Balanced ELA and/or Mathematics results will be shared directly with the UH System. Students who choose not to release their results to the UH System may need to provide those results upon request at a later date.
