To kick off Sunshine Week, the state Office of Information Practices (OIP) is pleased to announce that it has created another educational and practical tool to help state and county boards comply with the Sunshine Law. Whether you are a board member who is required to have Sunshine Law training, an attorney who advises boards, or a member of the public who wants to assess your knowledge of the law, OIP’s new online test is something that you can do at your convenience 24/7. The Sunshine Law test, along with the law, guides, and other training materials, are available at no charge on the training page of OIP’s website at

The online test randomly selects ten multiple-choice or true/false questions about the state’s Sunshine Law, Part I of HRS Chapter 92. People who correctly answer at least seven questions will receive an automatically generated certificate showing their successful passage of the test. The correct answers and explanations for each question will also be provided. Following the test, people are encouraged to respond to OIP’s user survey, the results of which will help OIP continue to improve services to government agencies and the general public.
