What is Study Island?
Study Island is an all online product designed to help your child master the standards
specific to their grade in your state.
Fast Facts –
Every student has their own username and password. The program is divided into sections based on subject. Each subject is
made up of topics, each of which corresponds to a specific state standard. Each topic contains lessons, practice questions and
explanations. Most topics are accompanied by a lesson which includes some brief information about the material covered by
the questions in the topic. Your child can also incorporate games into their studies while on Study Island.
How do I login to Study Island?
How does my child use Study Island?
After signing in on Study Island’s home page, click the subject tab on which you wish to work or check your student’s class
page for assignments created by your child’s teacher. To pass a topic, your child must satisfy the topic’s passing requirements
which are based on a minimum number of questions answered and a minimum percentage correct. A blue ribbon is displayed
next to all passed topics. Once your child has passed all the topics in the subject, he or she will have to pass the Post
Test for the subject. Ignore this step if the subject has no Post Test. Once your child passes all topics in all sections, he has completed
the Study Island program.
