Edmentum, Inc. Key Developments

Edmentum Enhances Learning Solution for Common Core Alignment

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).

Edmentum Releases Study Island STAAR Diagnostic Assessment for Texas Schools

Edmentum has updated its Study Island learning solution to support teachers and students as they prepare for the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) assessment. Teachers can now assign the 30-question diagnostic test at any time of the year to provide a high-level measure of where students stand in relation to the grade-level academic content. The program then provides teachers with immediate feedback through actionable, real-time progress reports that can be used to differentiate instruction. Study Island is a Web-based learning program that provides educators with interactive lessons and activities they can use with students to reinforce and reward their learning progress. 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. Study Island provides rigorous content that is highly customized to these standards, and enables students to improve their performance in core skill areas with a focus.
