At Edmentum, we’re fiercely committed to working with our educator partners to understand the unique ways they’re approaching these challenges through technology. And, as a part of those ongoing conversations, we often find that questions arise. How do I ensure that students meet proficiency expectations AND growth goals? If I’m using multiple programs, how can they work together, and what does an implementation actually look like? Well, rather than summarizing insights from customers near and far, we thought it was time to go deep and let you hear from one such educator who’s employing two Edmentum programs, Exact Path and Study Island, to drive toward rigorous outcomes that align with her goals and her students’ goals.
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.
Understandably, the prospect of your child having to physically attend school over the summer may sound undesirable to both your child and you. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of flexible online options for students of all ages and that bring the opportunity of learning straight to your home. Check out what’s available for your child this summer:
The end of the school year brings about a lot of reflection. Many teachers look back on how the year went and students remember what they learned. At Edmentum, things are no different! We love to look back on past blog posts to see what really resonated with our audience throughout the school year.
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.
Our research team here at Edmentum was honored to have Marzano Research peer review a research project that we conducted for our classroom practice and assessment program, Study Island. Through that review, Marzano confirmed our findings about the effectiveness of Study Island, and we also uncovered four best practices to help students get the most out of online practice.
Today, the ACT® exam is one of the nation’s leading college entry exams. Built to determine students’ academic readiness for the next step in their academic careers, it’s often taken by high school juniors and seniors. In recent years, however, the ACT exam has also taken a more prominent role in high school accountability plans in a handful of states (and the list is growing). And, while it’s no secret there are a lot of options when it comes to preparing for this nationally recognized exam, navigating the appropriate plan for preparation can be challenging.
