Education Research

The University of Hawai’i (UH) system is comprised of three universities, seven community colleges, and nine education centers on six islands. Native Hawaiian students accounted for 23.3% of the total enrollment in the UH System in Fall 2017 and 21.3% of all degrees and certificates awarded in fiscal year 2017-2018.

In SY2014, the Hawaiʻi Common Core State Standards replaced the Hawai’i Content and Performance Standards III. To align with these new standards, the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment was fully implemented in SY2015. Due to this change, results for SY2009-2013 (SBA), SY2014 (part-HAS, part-SBA “bridge” assessment), and SY2015 – SY2018 cannot be compared.

SY2018 assessment test results show that:

  • 38.0% of Native Hawaiian students were proficient in reading, a 3.8 percentage point increase from last year
  • 26.3% of Native Hawaiian students were proficient in math, a 0.4 percentage point decrease from last year

The Hawaiʻi Standard Assessment (HSA) in reading and math is administered to Department of Education (DOE) public school students in grades 3 – 8 and 10.

A report by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs’ (OHA) Research Department shares highlights on the Native Hawaiian student population in Hawai‘i’s public school system.
