What is it?
Study Island is a web-based TAKS preparation program subscribed to by Boon.
Why use it?
The TEA (Texas Educational Agency) identifies for each grade specific TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills). These TEKS make up the statewide curriculum. The TAKS tests taken by all students in grades 3-11 measures the understanding of the state curriculum. Study Island aligns its curriculum with the TEKS. Because the classroom teacher follows the TEKS, Study Island can be used for assessment of understanding and reinforcement of material.
