When you do head back to school and log in to Study Island, you will notice a few changes. As a lot of you know, last summer, we released a number of features that positively impacted the experience of students using Study Island. This summer, we focused on you, the teacher, and ways that we could improve your experience using Study Island with your students.
Most students lose two months of math skills every summer, and two-thirds of the achievement gap in reading between low-income students and their middle-income peers can be attributed to summer learning loss in elementary school. Why accept summer learning loss when you can fight it with Study Island? You can use Study Island to run a completely virtual summer learning program consisting of skills practice in all core content areas, as well as additional activities in writing and reading.
“Assessment” can feel like a dirty word for educators, but if you embrace it, the data that assessments provide can be used as a powerful tool you can use to promote the kind of growth you and your students want and expect to see.
By extending the partnership between our Study Island formative assessment solution and NWEA MAP Link, grade 9-12 educators can now easily pinpoint students' strengths and weaknesses and instruction instruction for their needs.
