What is Study Island?
Edmentum™ Study Island is an interactive learning platform where students in grades k-12 can strengthen their knowledge and skills in language arts, math, science, and social studies.
How Study Island Works
First, the student takes a diagnostic test to determine prior knowledge and isolate any learning gaps.
Then, the student focuses on a topic through an engaging, user-friendly lesson, including videos.
Next, the student practices what they have just learned by choosing from practice mode, game mode, or a printable worksheet.
Finally, mastery is shown on the student’s progress map.
What Makes Study Island Effective?
Student-paced Learning Students work through Study Island lessons and activities at their own pace, ideal for students who require extra time as well as for students looking to excel.
Interactive Learning Multi-media presentations and regular interaction with the learning platform keep students engaged.
Immediate Feedback Real-time assessment means students can quickly see what they got right and learn from any mistakes. As a result, students are motivated.
Mastery-based Learning The ultimate goal of Study Island is mastery of content and skills. Students do not move forward after simply “covering” a topic; they move forward after showing mastery of the topic.
Individualized Instruction Initial diagnostic testing generates a lesson list tailored to the student’s specific learning needs. Essentially the program becomes a one-on-one personalized learning experience.
Progress Monitoring Both teacher and student can see at a glance what topics have been mastered and where extra practice is needed, enabling the student to take ownership of their learning and ensuring teachers of learning progress.
