    I have my children work on study island as part of their homework (we are lacking computers in school). At first they weren't doing so well, then I got smart! I started requiring that they earn blue ribbons. I can't find the critera for earning a ribbon right now, but they earn a blue ribbon when they've successfully finished a subtest of each subject. Scores went up dramatically when I started doing this.

    Also, remember that scores are cumulative. If a child scores poorly and then get's a 100%, that score is averaged...It takes a while to get a score up once that happens. I monitor the children.. If they haven't taken it seriously, I'll delete their scores and make them start over. See the help section/reference manual for directions on how to wipe out a subtest score.

    We also offer rewards: study island pencil for 10 blue ribbons and a study island bracelet and name on the morning announcements when they've earned all the blue ribbons in the subject. For my state it's 20 for math and 19 for reading.
