Summary: Study Island is a formative assessment program that allows students to answer questions to help determine their understanding of the Illinois State Learning Standards

Teachers can quickly and easily build their own quizzes/tests and practice/instruction assignments in Study Island and assign them to their students – to determine if their instruction of the Illinois Learning Standards is “sticking” for their students

Engaging for the students – students earn Blue Ribbons for earning at least a 70% on all practice sessions in Study Island, and teachers can allow students to use Game Mode in Study Island, which gives students 60-second game breaks as they are answering questions linked to the Standards.
