Edmentum Enhances Learning Solution for Common Core Alignment
Aug 19 13
Edmentum has enhanced its Study Island test-preparation solution with the addition of nine item types aligned to the CCSS. With a total of 10 item types for testing, Study Island gives educators an industry-leading learning solution that can help students demonstrate a greater depth of understanding in math and English language arts. The new Study Island item types - such as constructed response, fill-in-the-blank, matched pairs and others - promote higher-order thinking and inquiry. Edmentum applied the CCSS Depth of Knowledge (DoK) guidelines to ensure the item types were written to the correct DoK level and ensure students get exposed to the appropriate content. The new item types are mobile compatible and align with the CCSS assessments under development by two separate consortia: the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).

The Study Island STAAR diagnostic assessment is specifically designed to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of students in grades 2-12 across all Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) areas, including reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. The Study Island standards mastery and test-preparation programs from Edmentum are specifically designed to help students master content specified in state and Common Core standards.
