Nothing happens when I click a topic to start studying. All students must take a pretest of at least ten questions before they are allowed to access topics in that subject. There is no passing requirement for the pretest. Is there a problem with Study Island scoring? A student received a 0% on his or her first practice session. On the second attempt he or she received a 100%, but the score says 75%. 75% is the final cumulative score. The system takes the total number of correct answers and divides that by the total number of attempted questions. A student received a score of 100% on his or her last session, but did not receive a blue ribbon for that particular topic. Study Island uses cumulative scores to measure student progress. Students must receive a cumulative score that is equal to or greater than the percentage listed in the “ Passing Goal ” column of the main page for that subject; as well as complete the required number of questions. So, if the percentage needed is 70%, students must have a cumulative score of at least 70% to receive a blue ribbon for that topic. Can a teacher clear test sessions that are holding a student’s average down? Yes. For instructions see page 16. As I was working with a student today, I noticed that the student was struggling to pass a topic. Can I delete sessions from my student’s login screen instead of having to login as a teacher? Yes. When students are viewing their own session stats, there are check boxes next to each session and a “Remove Checked Sessions” button at the top. When users try to remove sessions from a student login, they are prompted to enter a teacher username and password. A message will be sent to the teacher’s Message Center when a session is deleted. There is a red “X” in the corn er where an image should appear. The images may load by right-clicking (or holding the button down if using a Mac) where the image should appear and selecting to show the image on the resulting menu. I think I found an error in a question. How do I report this? Click “Comment on Question” in the upper right -hand corner. This allows our content editors to find the specific question and make changes, if necessary. I’m having difficulty using/viewing the games. Go to to help diagnose the problem.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
