school site include new site organization and the addition of study forums, daily feeds, and a career readiness section. To access the high school website, The Island, students will go to , enter their Study Island username and password, and click “Login.” Career Planning - The career readiness section will allow students to build resumes, letters of recommendation, and cover letters. In addition, there is section dedicated to interview tips and informational videos covering different aspects of interviewing for a job and/or college. Daily Feeds - Each main subject page (English, Social Studies, Math, Science) features a daily or weekly feed such as a word of the day, poem of the day, daily quotes, weekly brain teasers, and weekly weird science facts to generate student discussion. Passport Stamps - A passport stamp denotes topic mastery in “The Island” high school interface. The passport stamps are comparable to blue ribbons in the K-8 Study Island program. The Passport Stamps will only be seen when logged into the high school website; they will not replace the Blue Ribbons seen when logged into the Study Island website. Session Types (Study Modes) Once a topic is selected, there are multiple study modes from which to choose. The choice of study mode does not affect the academic content you will see, only the mode in which it is presented. Students have the following options: Test Mode, Classroom Response System (CRS), Game Mode, and Printable Worksheet. Test Mode Standard multiple choice or short answer format. By default, questions are in this mode. The number of questions will automatically default to the minimum number required to meet the passing parameter for that topic, but students have the ability to change the number of questions for a test session. Classroom Response System - Teachers will be able to use their CRS classroom clickers with the Study Island program. Please note that your school will need to have already purchased a CRS system to be able to use this feature. You can find complete instructions and system requirements online by clicking Help, then Clickers. Game Mode There are many different games that your students can play. Updated versions of Java and Flash are required to play the games, and are available online as free downloads. Game Mode questions contain the same content as other study modes. Please note: Playi ng the games WILL affect the students’ scores just as if they were taking a regular test session. The student can choose games from three difficulty levels: Beginner, Intermediate, or Challenging. The difficulty level does not pertain to the questions, but rather to the level at which the game is played. Printable Worksheet Students can choose one or multiple topics by putting a check mark next to the topics they want to include on their worksheet. Answers are located at the bottom of a teacher copy; however students do not have access to the answers. Please note that questions taken in the Printable Worksheet mode cannot be entered into Study Island reports.

    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.
