  • Coming Soon - Summer 2017 Platform Enhancements

    New Student Dashboard
    The student dashboard is getting a reboot this summer! In an effort to give students more agency over their learning journey, we're elevating elements of student success paired beside next steps for ongoing practice. The redesigned dashboard will include active assignments, in-progress topics, suggested topics based on prior performance, and Blue Ribbons earned.

    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're surfacing 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 will soon be 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 will also be listed as an assignment type you can choose from via Class Manager.

    Group Sessions Player Enhancements
    In-session upgrades to Group Sessions will 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.

    Updated Scoring Model to Highlight Best Score
    Rather than using a cumulative score to assess mastery of a topic, we are using an even more meaningful measure—best score. Students will 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 as needed.

    To get a sneak peek at what these enhancements will look like and how they will function, check out the Study Island What's New Guide and the recorded Study Island Summer 2017 Sneak Peek Webinar.
