Study Island

Our school now has access to a great resource for preparing our kids for the state standardized tests. We have purchased a building license for a web-based program called Study Island. If you have Internet access, your child can access Study Island from home as well as school to prepare for the state assessments. Study Island has increased security features site-wide to provide greater peace of mind.

Since the Study Island state assessment program is completely web-based, students can access it from any computer with an Internet connection and a standard web browser. Results from student study sessions are recorded and made available to the teachers. This includes results from sessions completed at home. The program is divided into sections based on subject (math, reading, etc.). Each section is made up of 10 to 25 topics, which contain about 20 to 25 questions each. Most topics are accompanied by a lesson, which includes some brief information about the material covered by the questions in the topics. It is helpful to view the lesson before answering the questions in the topic.      

Accessing Study Island

Follow the instructions below to use the program:
1. Click on the Study Island logo on the bottom of this page.
2. Enter your username and password at the upper-left side of the screen, and click "Login". Students will receive a username and password from their teacher at school.
3. Click on the section tab (math, reading, etc).
4. If this is the first time you are using the program, click the word "Pretest" to begin the pretest for the section. You must complete 10 pretest questions to unlock the rest of the content in the subject. If there is no pretest option, or if you have already taken the pretest, feel free to move on to the other content topics.
5. Once you have completed the "Pretest," you may work through the remainder of the topics in any order you like. You must "pass" all topics before taking the "Post Test".
6. To pass a topic, you must satisfy the group's passing requirements which are based a minimum number of questions answered (usually 10) and a minimum percentage correct (around 70%). A blue ribbon icon is displayed next to all passed topics.
7. Once you have passed all the topics in the section, you have to pass the "Post Test" for the section before it is complete. Ignore this step if the section has no "Post Test".
8. When you pass all topics in all sections, you have completed the program and will be well prepared to take the state test.
