Michaela Kenon, who teaches math, German, and CTE courses for EdOptions Academy, uses videos posted to her Twitter account to reach her students, coming up with creative parodies and even rap songs (at the request of her students) to make online learning approachable, relatable, and most of all, fun.
This past March, I had the pleasure of speaking with kindergarten teacher Courtney Munsell and 5th grade teacher Nikki Privett, both educators at Fortville Elementary School in Indiana. In our conversation together, they quickly began comparing and contrasting their use of Study Island, Edmentum’s K–12 practice and formative assessment program. These teachers have expertly uncovered keys to utilizing Study Island to help their students meet grade-level expectations and prepare for summative assessments.
In response to your feedback, we have been releasing a series of enhancements to make sure that Study Island continues to meet and exceed your needs as your go-to practice and formative assessment program. In this post, I'll unpack our most recent updates and also provide a peek at what's to come this summer and fall.
I’m pleased to share all of the exciting enhancements designed to support personalized instruction and targeted intervention for K–12 students that are going to be available for the 2019–20 school year. This year, we’re focusing our work in three primary areas: reimagining diagnostic assessment reporting, adding teacher customization and flexibility, and improving the learning experience for our students.
