Effective practice to meet grade-level expectations

At Edmentum, we believe in the value of practice to provide deliberate, goal-directed skill rehearsal and reflection so that students build automaticity and long-term memory. Practice, when done right, is so much more than “drill and kill.” With explicit practice, your students can access and apply increasingly complex information and unlock new learning opportunities.

Preparation for high-stakes assessments

When test day rolls around, your students’ scores should be reflective of their content knowledge, not their ability to decode the test itself. Prepare students with Study Island Benchmarks built specifically to your state’s testing blueprints. Benchmarks give students low-risk opportunities to practice navigating online testing environments and provide you with strong predictors of end-of-year summative test scores.
