Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
Study Island, LLC, one of the leading and fastest growing Web-based educational companies, has launched a new online standards mastery and test preparation program based on the Montana Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT). The program is built from the ground-up based specifically on the Content Standards that are tested annually on the CRT in grades 3 through 8.
"We are pleased to bring Study Island to Montana," stated Tim McEwen, Study Island's CEO. "At Study Island, we realize these are challenging times, and that is why we provide a low-cost, Web-based, and easy-to-implement program that has been proven to ameliorate student proficiency across core subject areas from grades K-12 in a wide variety of school settings and with differentiated student populations. Our success is based on internal development of quality content that is deeply customized to ensure state-specific standards mastery leading to improved high-stakes test performance."
Study Island is foundationally and statistically research-based and is effective in increasing student learning and achievement in diverse settings across the nation. Moreover, Study Island enables students to choose their style of learning and work at their own pace. Students can work using a standard test format or choose from a wide range of interactive games. Incorrect answers are immediately addressed with an explanation of the correct response. Study Island records statistics for each student using multiple real-time reports, which helps teachers measure student progress and identify areas needing improvement. In addition, teachers can choose to use the printable worksheet or classroom response pad functions, making Study Island an extremely flexible, user-friendly, interactive program.
