Innovative Assessment Stakeholder Committee
In May 2019, the Hawai'i Department of Education (HIDOE) announced the opportunity for community groups to collaborate on the design of Hawai'i's innovative assessment system. A broad spectrum of stakeholders (or their representatives) from the Hawai'i State Legislature, Hawai'i State Teachers Association, Hawai'i State Public Charter School Commission, Kamehameha Schools, Hawai'iKidsCAN, Hawai'i Association of School Psychologists, parents, and HIDOE were selected to serve on the Innovative Assessment Stakeholder Committee.
HIDOE stakeholders representing eight Complex Areas, including administrators, curriculum specialists, Hawaiian language/culture specialist, and teachers from multiple disciplines (English Language Arts (ELA), math, science, social studies, and STEM), participated in the Stakeholder meetings.
WestEd facilitated the Stakeholder meetings that were held on June 18, July 2, and July 16, 2019 on O'ahu. The learning objectives and outcomes for each Stakeholder Committee meeting are provided in the table below.
The ideas, recommendations, and reflections from the Stakeholder meetings, which are summarized in the HIDOE Innovative Assessment Planning Project Summary Report, will serve as guiding principles for developing the HIDOE's Innovative Assessment Demonstration Authority (IADA) pilot application.
Innovative Assessment Design Team
In November and December of 2020, the Innovative Assessment Design Team met to discuss various innovative assessment models to prioritize the designs that would best meet the needs of HIDOE as described by the Stakeholder Committee.
