Study Island

study_island_logo I’ve had the opportunity to look at this program that is owned by Edmentum called Study Island.

This simple tool is aligned and specifically written to the Florida FCAT and Common Core standards, presented in an online test-like fashion. Although the school that I teach at doesn’t apply to these standards as we are a private college preparatory school, we have the ability to create customized test for our various classes.  This allows us to create placements exams for new students as well as create practice exams for students in a majority of our classes even the AP classes.

This really helps the school to get a “picture” of how they are doing as well as their students. Being able to specifically design this to fit the needs of our school and have the data and information to track the curriculum as well as the progress of the teachers and students is an asset to any school.
