Frequently Asked Questions
How often should my students be using Istation? Click this link to see Istation’s best practices for usage fidelity.
If we use Istation Español, are we eligible to participate in this contest? Although we encourage the use of Istation Español, for this specific drawing we are measuring school participation based solely on Istation Reading.
Is practice counted before the active month of the contest? If you enter the contest, your school’s usage minutes will only be counted during the month of the contest: February 3 through March 2, 2019.
How can I check on my school’s progress during the contest? After logging in to www.Istation.com, customers can access usage trend reporting, which allows schools to track student usage by month across the school year.
Will you be posting rankings so we can see where we stand in the competition? No, school rankings will not be posted. A school’s fidelity is private information and will not be shared with anyone else.
How do I sign up multiple schools for the contest? Each school signed up for the contest should be registered separately via the registration form by a representative from that school.
