Study Island at McLean
Our school now has access to a great resource for preparing our kids for the state standardized TAKS tests. We have purchased a building license for a web-based program called Study Island. If you have Internet access, your child can access Study Island from home as well as as chool to prepare for the state assessments. Students can use Study Island to prepare for Math, Reading, Writing, Science and Social Studies TAKS tests. Study Island has increased security features site-wide to provide greater peace of mind.

The following directions provide an overview of the program. We are excited about the potential benefits this program can bring to our students, and we strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity by using Study Island. Please feel free to contact Study Island at 800-419-3191 or support@studyisland.com if you have any questions. Your child's username is the first letter of their name followed by a "dot" and their last name @McLean (example: John Doe would be j.doe@mclean). Your child's password is their Fort Worth ISD Student Identification number. In some instances, there is more than one student with the same first initial and last name. In those instances, your child can get their username from one of their teachers or Mr. Nors.

To access Study Island, go to studyisland.com
Sincerely
John Engel
Principal
McLean Middle School

Using Study Island from Home

Since the Study Island state assessment program is completely web-based, students can access it from any computer with an Internet connection and a standard web browser. Results from student study sessions are recorded and made available to the teachers. This includes results from sessions completed at home. The program is divided into sections based on subject (Math, Reading, etc.). Each section is made up of 10 to 25 topics, which contain about 20 to 25 questions each. Most topics are accompanied by a lesson, which includes some brief information about the material covered by the questions in the topics. It is helpful to view the lesson before answering the questions in the topic.
Follow the instructions below to use the program:
  1. Go to studyisland.com
  2. Enter your username and password at the upper-left side of the screen, and click "Login". Students will receive a username and password from their teacher at school.
  3. Click on the section tab (Math, Reading, etc.).
  4. If this is the first time you are using the program, click the word "Pretest" to begin the pretest for the section. You must complete 10 pretest questions to unlock the rest of the content in the subject. If there is no pretest option, or if you have already taken the prestest, feel free to move on to the other content topics.
  5. Once you have completed the "Pretest," you may work through the remainder of the topics in any order you like. You must "pass" all topics before taking the "Post Test".
  6. To pass a topic, youmust satisfy the group's passing requirements which are based on a minimum number of questions answered (usually 10) and a minimum percentage correct (around 70%). A blue ribbon icon is displayed next to all passed topics.
  7. Once you have passed all the topics in the section, you have to pass the "Post Test" for the section before it is complete. Ignore this step if the section has no "Post Test".
  8. When you pass all topics in the sections, you have completed the program and will be well prepared to take the state test.
