Overall Satisfaction with Study Island

We used Study Island with the 8th graders in my classroom as a resource for extra Math and Language Arts practice. It was being used across the entire organization and addressed many problems that arose with the various learning styles and levels that were present in my group of over 100 students.
  • Meets student at their learning level (I could assign different levels to different groupings of my students to better reach them where they were at educationally)
  • Is easy to assign based on specific standards
  • Shows a great representation of strong and weak areas for students and group as a whole
  • Is very user friendly for both the teacher and the student
  • Student logins can at times be confusing and time consuming for teachers and students alike
  • Costs can be very expensive depending on class size
  • Support can take time to reach when problems arise
  • Customizable tests and activities
  • State Standards are clear and easy to use in building assignments
  • Very kid-friendly and appealing to the younger audiences
  • Saves a lot of time for teachers!
  • It has put teachers on the same page since we are all using the same platform
  • It has improved student test scores and retention
  • It has given us a platform to create and give student assessments in a fun way outside the typical classroom setting
I have used a couple of different study and learning tools, and Study Island is my favorite! Some of the things that make Study Island stand out are their easy to create assignments, easy to navigate activities (for students), and easy to grade/assess students. The platform is so colorful and fun for students and keeps them engaged!

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.
