The presentations helped me develop a deeper understanding of a subject. The information is a nice combination of [being] well organized and applicable to real life information. The test questions are clearly worded and really make you think (but not crazy unrealistic scenarios). I feel very confident about my ability to perform my job.

Study Island

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.

[I selected Skillsoft Academy because it's] much easier to use and has relevant courses. I would like to give 4.5 stars to the course selection, delivery, content, and exams

Study Island

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.
