Hawaii DOE selects assessment tools aligned to Common Core

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) today announced that its Riverside division has been selected by the Hawaii Department of Education to provide assessment tools for the state’s English Language Arts and Mathematics curriculum. As part of its Race to the Top initiative, the Department chose Riverside’s Assess2Know® item bank to prepare school districts for compliance with Common Core State Standards.

The Assess2Know solution is aligned to the Common Core and provides educators with a tool to measure student progress toward instructional objectives, allowing for targeted intervention and remediation for grades one through high school.

The Assess2Know Benchmark item bank includes thousands of measures that are tightly aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The item bank enables educators to create their own assessments according to their district’s pacing guide by using an online test generator, and also allows them to construct tests aligned to individual state standards.
