Archipelago Learning (NASDAQ:ARCL), a leading subscription-based online education company, today announced the release of End of Instruction (EOI) courses for Algebra II, Geometry, and U.S. History for the state of Oklahoma. An easy-to-use and affordable online solution, the newest addition to the Study Island OCCT Preparation and PASS Mastery Program is specifically designed to help students improve their knowledge and understanding of the content specified in the Oklahoma High School EOI. Performance on this exam determines advancement, graduation status, and a school’s AYP status.
States, districts, schools, teachers, parents, and students will benefit from the integration of Study Island EOI programs into course curriculum by exposing students to the specific content and design of Oklahoma’s EOI exam. Overall, one can expect improved student performance, feedback for teachers and students to provide opportunities for targeted teaching, and data to improve teacher quality.
“With the emphasis on America’s children to be college-ready as well as the importance of being able to compete with the education of children globally from the Obama Administration, it is critical for high school students to be prepared for the content and style of the Oklahoma EOI exam,” stated Becky Wofford, vice president of Marketing at Archipelago Learning. “Utilizing Study Island programs is a cost-effective way for teachers to reinforce classroom lessons and concentrate on the areas the program identifies as student weaknesses, allow their students to practice for their exam to increase graduation rates, and improve overall AYP status for their school and district.”
