AHPTA Study Island
Study Island is a fun, internet-based program which can be used anywhere that internet access is available. This program has been purchased by the Arbor Heights PTA this year for all
in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Study Island directly covers all of the subjects in the Washington State standards upon which the state MSP (Measurement of Student Progress) Test is based. It presents questions which are similar to those found in the MSP and MAP tests and does an excellent job of preparing students for those tests.
Using Study Island is easy.

Set aside a regular time for Study Island and have them spend a half hour or earn a blue ribbon in any topic - whichever comes first.
Use Study Island to balance out other screen time so that every half hour spent on Study Island earns an equal amount of time for computer games or TV.
Offer a special activity or some small reward blue ribbons.
The blue ribbon means that they have mastered that test subject.
Keep them moving to different topics.
Keep it fun!
If you don't have internet access at home, you can visit your public library which offers free internet access. You might also visit a classmate, neighbor or friend who has internet access. The power of Study Island is that it can be a
learning tool which can be used to enhance your
learning. Start at the top and encourage your
to work their way down the list of topics until they have tried every topic at least once. If your
did not score as highly as you expected on the MSP test last year, please take advantage of Study Island to help your
improve this year. This is one area where parents
directly help their
aise the test scores at Arbor Heights, by filling in the gaps between district curriculum and state standards. No matter how you feel about this testing, it is
that our children have mastery over the topics covered in the Washington State standards in order to do well in their future grades.
Please note: Study Island is being administered by
Arbor Heights Parent/PTA member Franklin Hu, who has access to the performance and scores of all children
who participate in the program
