[Classroom Tips] Educators Share how they use Study Island to Support Virtual Learning

This unprecedented school year has meant that educators have had to quickly adapt to teaching online. For many, that has meant taking a fresh look at their web-based tools and determining how to best utilize them in a fully virtual environment. To learn how educators are making the switch from in-person to virtual learning using Study Island, we challenged all Study Island educators to share how they are using specific features of the program, and the responses did not disappoint. Thank you to everyone who participated! Sharing your innovative ideas helps other educators and informs future enhancements to Study Island.

We couldn’t fit all of the great posts in one blog, but below are some of the responses. To see the full collection, check out #StudyIsland2020 on Facebook and Twitter.

Test Builder

The Test Builder tool in Study Island allows educators to assemble their own custom assessments from Study Island’s vast item bank. Once students take the assessment, results are immediately available for students, and teachers have access to detailed reports down to each individual standard.

We are excited to see the creative ways that educators are making sure that learning continues whether in-person or online.
