  • Summer 2017 Platform Enhancements

    This summer, we have taken the Study Island you know and love to the next level! We have made changes to both educator and student features—and they're all based on YOUR feedback. Want to learn more about these enhancements? Register for a What's New with Study Island live webinar. If none of the dates or times work with your schedule, register anyway and we'll send you the recording.

    New Student Dashboard

    The student dashboard has gotten a reboot! In an effort to give students more agency over their learning journey, we have elevated elements of student success paired beside next steps for ongoing practice. The redesigned dashboard includes active assignments, in-progress topics, suggested topics based on prior performance, and Blue Ribbons earned. Learn more.

    Updated Scoring Model to Highlight Best Score

    Rather than using a cumulative score to assess mastery of a topic, we are now using an even more meaningful measure—best score. Students will now be asked to complete a standardized 10-question practice session every time to demonstrate mastery and earn their Blue Ribbon. As students work through their session, they will have the option to save their work and return to that same 10-question session, beginning just where they left off without skipping a beat. When a session is completed, students will see their best score and number of attempts on that topic. Similarly, educators will also see their student's highest scores, but can continue to access cumulative scores via reports. Learn more.

    View Standards more easily in the Topic Tree

    In Study Island, content is built from the ground up to your state standards. To help you easily identify how each topic is aligned, we've surfaced standards even more. Next to each topic, the standard number can now be found. With one click, both students and educators can read the details of that specific standard to get a clearer picture of what will be covered in that practice session.

    Launch a Built Test in Group Sessions

    You are now able to launch Built Tests in a Group Session environment for more collaborative practice with your students. Want to review a recent assessment or practice test questions together as a class? Now, you can.

    Assign Group Sessions from Class Manager

    In addition to leveraging Group Sessions from the Topic Tree, Group Sessions are now listed as an assignment type you can choose from via Class Manager.

    Group Sessions Player Enhancements

    In-session upgrades to Group Sessions now include an expanded question window for easier viewing on your smart board, and reporting that allows you to review results during the session without exposing student names.

    Check out the Study Island What's New Guide for more details.

  • Additional Mobile-Optimized Content

    EducationCity is continuously updated with new and improved resources to support student learning. Recently, even more updated Learn Screens and Activities were added to Language Arts and Math. Continue to check the 'New Content' tab in the Teacher Area to check out all the fresh content as soon as it releases!

  • Georgia Standards Map

    For our Georgia customers, we've aligned all content across our core subjects to your state standards. Now, during lesson planning, you can quickly navigate to the Standards Map to see Lesson Ideas, Activities, Learn Screens, and more content aligned to the specific Georgia standard you're covering in class.

  • Student Information System

    EdOptions Academy upgraded to a new Student Information System this summer. This new system allows you to:

    • Roster students more quickly
    • Bulk enroll students into multiple classes at once
    • View course descriptions within the SIS
    • Easily track communication for your students
    • Closely track progress of all of your students’ course work

    With this upgrade, all of your students, school users and course progress have been moved over and you will still have access to the same great courses and teachers! For more information, including how-to-guides and videos, visit the customer success zone!
