Study Island’s data-driven standards mastery and formative assessment solutions are designed to help K–12 students master the content specified in state and Common Core standards and improve performance in core skill areas. Study Island’s high-impact, high-value learning programs provide quality academic support, practice, and real-time assessment data. The immediate feedback and built-in remediation, coupled with the actionable data, enable educators to easily monitor student progress and differentiate instruction.
Study Island is ideal for self-paced, individualized learning or teacher-led, whole-class instruction. Teachers can easily guide students through the program, communicate expectations, and create class assignments. Students can work through questions using a standard test format, an interactive game format, printable worksheets, or a classroom response system.
