Study Island

Study Island

Study Island is one of the most effective tools that we have. Based on research and experience, Study Island provides great feedback about students’ mastery on standards. This data can be used for variety of reasons in instruction. Please see following Study Island expectations and notes:

  • In order for a Study Island quiz to be complete, a student must earn a Blue Ribbon (70%+).
  • All Study Island quizzes will be entered on OSCS Connect as a grade.
  • Study Island will be assigned for homework and will also be used in class.
  • Kindergarten – 2nd Grade must complete all ELA & Math Study Island quizzes for their grade level by May 4th, 2020.

What is i-Ready?

i-Ready is an online program for reading and/or mathematics that will help your child’s teacher(s) determine your child’s needs, personalize their learning, and monitor progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows your teacher(s) to meet your child exactly where they are and provides data to increase your child’s learning gains. i-Ready consists of two parts: Diagnostic and Instruction.

We will begin i-Ready testing next week and use this data to formulate MTSS (intervention groups).

For additional information on i-Ready, please visit the i-Ready Family Center
