Renaissance Learning

Freckle is a fantastic online learning platform. I think it works well in multiple learning environments. Last year I used Freckle in a distance learning model and this year on individual iPads in class. I love that it is a quick platform to assess student achievement. I haven't experienced a scenario where Freckle would fail however, lack of access to the internet is always a factor.

Over all, I was very impressed with my experience using Study Island. I think that it provides a great resource for teachers of larger groups of students. On the other hand, it may not be as worthwhile of an investment in a small group or individual student level. All in all, kids love this program, and it provides teachers with an in-depth look at how a child is progressing or understanding the content/standard being covered in the Study Island activity. The colors are fun, the graphics are fun, and the questions are nicely organized and customizable.

    Alternatives Considered

    Renaissance Learning

    I think that Freckle is a great supplemental support for students who are working at a K - 3 grade equivalency. The content is better than Moby Max, IXL, and FlashtoPass. However, freckle is very elementary with the look, sounds, incentives, and avatars. It is difficult to get many of our middle school students to "buy-in" to using the program. The content on the site is great. Teachers can pinpoint skills that students need to master. They can also assign problems by domain or specific standards.

    I didn't choose Study Island over Renaissance Accelerated Math. Study Island doesn't offer the in-depth review of standards over and over like Renaissance Accelerated Math does. Plus, Renaissance Accelerated Math also makes them wait 2 weeks then re-introduces the standards they have mastered to make sure they still have that mastery, and if they don't, it makes them re-do that standard.
