Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 110

Students showed an increase on their overall test scores from the Cycle 1 assessment to midterm and from the cycle 3 assessment to final in 6th grade advanced and accelerated science.  They told me study island helped them review the benchmarks they had previously scored low in, gaining a better understanding of the content.

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

My goal for this project is to obtain higher student achievement on the state summative assessments through the use of the Study Island program.  

 

What will be done with my students

I have used Study Island in the past as a supplement to what I do in the classroom. The web-based program lets students work at their own pace, reinforcing the science standards. My kids can review the content taught in class and take quizzes with questions similar to what they'd see on the summative assessments given by the district and state (i.e. FCAT). Based on formative assessments given in class, I also assign students certain sections where they need remediation. I do this because I want them all to be able to demonstrate mastery. Students I've had in the past also use this as a tool to prepare for my unit tests. They told me it really helps them study, which is why I am applying for this grant!  

 

Benefits to my students

Study Island supports the learning process and builds off my students’ enthusiasm for technology with engaging, interactive lessons and activities. Through the use of this program, students are able to practice and review rigorous and engaging content built from Florida's state standards and Common Core standards. Instruction is differentiated with immediate feedback, built-in remediation, and actionable, real-time progress reports. I love that I can assign certain sections based on individual needs, run data reports, and modify my instruction in class based on scores. The fact that it's web-based and easy to use allows me to reinforce key academic concepts anytime, anywhere.  

 

Describe the Students

My students have a desire to learn. We are a title one school with the majority of our population being African American. I teach all academic levels. My students vary from low to high performers and all deserve the chance to meet their full potential.
