Study Island is built from the Curriculum Standards. The Study Island Achievement Tests Preparation Program is specifically designed to help students practice, review, and master the content outlined in the Curriculum Standards.
Study Island provides:
Affordable, easy-to-use instruction, practice, assessment and reporting
Study Island is built directly from the Curriculum Standards and helps students stay on track.
Web-based so that students can log on via the Internet anytime, anywhere Study Island requires no software installation and is simultaneously accessible to all students. Students can use it at school, home or anywhere with an Internet connection.
Research-based, easy-to-use, and affordable for all schools and districts Study Island is foundationally and statistically research-based. The program has proven effective in increasing student learning and achievement.
Traditional assessments and interactive games based on the state standards Study Island enables students to choose their style of learning. Students can work using a standard test format or interactive game format.
Province-specific lessons and questions with immediate feedback and automated instruction Upon answering a question incorrectly, students are shown the correct answer along with a detailed explanation of the correct response. When students need extra help on a specific topic, the Study Island program automatically prompts them to work on remedial-level material for that topic.
Real-time progress reports to drive differentiation and instruction in your classroom The Study Island program records statistics for each user session in a real-time report card. These statistics measure progress, streamline the learning process and can be customized by student, subject, class, grade and school.
Dynamic Content Not only are there thousands of practice items, but each item is constantly changing. The answers to the multiple-choice questions continuously change positions, and the numbers for the math questions are randomly chosen. Students are compelled to learn the concepts with a deeper understanding rather than just memorizing the answers.
I think this is an awesome program. I have worked with many different programs and this one is by far my favorite.
