If there’s one thing we know that is constant, it’s change. And we don’t have to tell you, Illinois educators, you’re in the midst of a big change when it comes to the Illinois state assessments. Starting from the beginning, here were the hopes the Illinois Department of Education laid out to outline the evolution of the state assessment.
The beginning of second semester, when needs and challenges are well-known, is a great time to pilot a program that can lead to meaningful improvements in student outcomes. Think of it like a halftime change to the game plan—you know what everyone showed up with, and you’re ready to make adjustments. Here are four reasons to consider a second semester pilot of one of Edmentum’s online learning programs.
As Study Island users will agree, there are so many things to love about this program. From standards-based formative assessments, to real-time progress monitoring and ongoing practice, Study Island hits all the key features educators look for in an online program. In this blog we are highlighting some of teachers’ favorite Study Island features and how they are using them in their classrooms.
Study Island offers printable worksheets for every subject and topic, allowing teachers to use the question banks to provide a pen-to-paper, physical assignment for their learners. I’ve seen schools use these in a variety of innovative ways.
At Edmentum, we’ve recently started offering educators the option to pilot our programs as part of our commitment to be a true partner. Basically, pilots offer schools and districts the chance to fully implement our Courseware, Study Island, or Exact Path online programs for up to an entire school year at no charge outside of the cost of training sessions.
Study Island's Test Builder feature is an excellent tool to reduce the amount of time and work associated with creating and administering high-quality common assessments. Using Study Island, teacher teams can take a task that once required several hours and many different resources and complete it much more quickly and easily.
