Using Study Island from Home

Study Island is a web-based program to help prepare our students for the state standardized tests. This program is accessible to students from school, home or anywhere with an Internet connection.

Since the Study Island state assessment program is completely web-based, students can access it from any computer with an Internet connection and a standard web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape). Results from students study sessions are recorded and made available to the teachers. This includes results from sessions completed at home.

The program is divided into sections based on subject (math, reading, etc.). Each section is made up of 10 to 25 topics, which contain about 20 to 25 questions each. Many topics are accompanied by a lesson, which includes some brief information about the material covered by the questions in the topics. It is helpful to view the lesson before answering the questions in the topic.

Follow the instructions below, in order to use the program:

1. Go to www.studyisland.com

2. Enter your username and password at the upper-left of the screen, and click “Login”. Note: Students will receive a username and password from their teacher at school.

3. Click on the section tab (math, reading, etc.) that you wish to work on.

4. Click the “Pretest” in order to begin the pretest for the section. You must complete 10 pretest questions before moving on to the topic in the section.

5. Once you complete the “Pretest,” you may work through the remainder of the topics in any order you like. You must “pass” all topics before taking the “Post Test”.

6. To pass a topic, you must satisfy the group’s passing requirements which are based a minimum number of questions answered (usually 10) and a minimum percentage correct (around 70%). A blue ribbon icon is displayed next to all passed topics.

7. Once you have passed all the topics in the section you have to pass the “Post Test” for the section before the section is complete. Ignore this step if the section has no “Post Test”.

8. When you pass all topics in all sections, you have completed the program an will be well prepared to take the state test.
