Study Island


Study IslandEdmentum™ 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.
