Edmentum has enhanced its Study Island test-preparation solution with the addition of nine item types aligned to the Common Core State Standards (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, according to the announcement.
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).
