Edmentum’s Study Island is a supplemental online product that helps students in grades K-12 master the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and prepare for STAAR exams. In summer 2016, Learning List reviewed language arts, science, and math resources for grades 4-6. In summer 2017, we added reviews for language arts at grade 3, writing at grade 4, science at grades 2-3 and 7-8, and high school biology.

Across subjects and grade levels, Study Island supports teacher-guided instruction and independent study. Instruction is presented in short lessons followed by a set of “Sessions” with practice activities. Lessons include definitions of new terms, examples, and illustrations to support understanding. Many lessons have interactive flashcards for new vocabulary and terms; flashcards also may be printed. Some lessons include animated and video-based content.

Sessions provides content in four modes: (1) Practice Mode presents sets of practice exercises with corrective feedback, (2) Game Mode contains interactive learning games, (3) Group Session Mode supports large group or whole class instruction, and (4) Worksheet Mode has editable, printable worksheets.

Online tools allow students to work independently and monitor their own progress. Teachers have access to comprehensive monitoring resources to track student and class progress in multiple, easy-to-use and -understand formats.
