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

Study Island features an easy-to-follow four step process:

  1. Student completes a diagnostic test to determine prior knowledge and isolate any learning gaps.
  2. Student focuses on specific topics through an engaging, user-friendly lesson, including videos.
  3. Student practices what they have learned in steps 1 and 2 by choosing from practice mode, game mode or a printable worksheet.
  4. Each student’s progress map is updated to show topic mastery and progress.

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 who want to excel.
  • Interactive Learning: Multi-media presentations and regular interaction with the learning platform keep students engaged.
  • Immediate Feedback: Real-time assessment means students are more motivated because they can quickly see what they got right and learn from their own mistakes.
  • 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.

  • Learning Gaps: Study Island can help students catch up if they are behind or address concepts and skills they may have previously missed.
  • Gifted Students:  Students looking for more challenging work are able to proceed at a pace matched to their individual abilities.
  • Curriculum Supplement: Providing extra instruction and practice is an ideal complement to regular instruction.
  • Learning Reinforcement: Practice! Practice! Practice! We call it learning reinforcement but with a variety of activities and games, students call it FUN!
