    Study Island Grading: (Graded Assignments or Homework)
     
    Study Island is an online program assigned for different weeks depending on the material we are learning. I will post it in my classroom and on the homework calendar. Students are only expected to complete the assignment, which means answering all the questions. They know they are to take this seriously because it is a way for them to prepare for the PARCC and review material learned in class. Questions are asked in different formats from what they may be used to in their workbooks. I am trying to expose them to various styles of questions. They have one week to complete each assignment. It is graded based on how many questions they complete. However, at times, I may use the grade that they receive on the Study Island assignment if it a mastered skill. I will notify students of this ahead of time, and it will posted on the white board.
