Our school has purchased Study Island, an online assessment preparation program. Study Island is an instructional and diagnostic tool that enables teachers to help students master the state standards and prepare for their state tests. The more time students spend using the Study Island program, the better they will understand the material for their respective grade level. Students can access Study Island from any computer that is connected to the Internet.
How Study Island Works:
Every student and teacher has their own username and password. The program is divided into sections based on subject (math, reading, etc.). Each section is made up of approximately 30 topics and each topic corresponds to a standard (or multiple, related standards) from our state curriculum. Topics consist of a lesson and a bank of practice questions with explanations.
Goal of the Program:
The goal of the program is to “pass” every topic. If a student passes every topic, he or she has demonstrated proficiency in all areas tested and is very well prepared for the state test.
