The Department of Education has authority over educator assessments.


In collaboration with educators, the Department developed the Educator Effectiveness System (EES), a comprehensive evaluation system that sets clear expectations for effective teaching, provides educators with quality feedback and support, and informs professional development. The Department devoted extraordinary resources to develop the EES, which was designed with best practices in mind. At its core, the EES is designed to help teachers succeed, thereby elevating their profession, and ultimately, public education in Hawaii. 50% of the annual evaluation is based on student performance measures.
