Study Island is an online test preparation tool which incorporates computer games into learning. Since introducing it at Woodglen during the 2007-2008 school year, our students have taken an instant liking to it.
In Study Island, students answer questions which are linked to the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards in math and language arts. Science is also included for eighth graders. A variety of computer games are incorporated. As students answer questions correctly, they earn playing time. Student progress, number of questions answered, and high scores are logged, allowing students to challenge themselves and teachers to track their progress.
Additional information and a tour of the site are available at Study Island New Jersey.
