Edmentum, a leading provider of online learning solutions, has updated its Study Island learning solution to support teachers and students as they prepare for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) assessment. Teachers can now assign the 30-question diagnostic test at any time of the year to provide a high-level measure of where students stand in relation to the grade-level academic content. The program then provides teachers with immediate feedback through actionable, real-time progress reports that can be used to differentiate instruction.

Study Island is a Web-based learning program that provides educators with interactive lessons and activities they can use with students to reinforce and reward their learning progress. The Study Island STAAR diagnostic assessment is specifically designed to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of students in grades 2-12 across all Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) areas, including reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies.

The Study Island STAAR diagnostic assessments enable Texas teachers to quickly and easily measure student progress,” said Mark Caulfield, Study Island product manager for Edmentum. “Teachers can then individualize their instruction to ensure learners are focusing on academic content that matches their specific ability levels.”

The Study Island standards mastery and test-preparation programs from Edmentum are specifically designed to help students master content specified in state and Common Core standards. Study Island provides rigorous content that is highly customized to these standards, and enables students to improve their performance in core skill areas with a focus on math, English language arts, science and social studies.
