How To - Unblock Study Island
Posted by , Last modified by Jim Giseburt on 21 July 2017 03:57 PM

Study Island is a web-based application designed to aid state assessment examination preparation. According to Study Island's creators, "Study Island combines rigorous content that is highly customized to specific state standards in math, reading, writing, science, and social studies with interactive features and games that engage students and reinforce and reward learning achievement."

 

Unblocking Study Island

In order to access content on Study Island, it might be necessary to whitelist studyisland.com. You will also want to verify that you do not have rackcdn.com entered on a blacklist, as Study Island relies on that site as a content delivery service. 

If your devices are being transparently proxied by the Cipafilter, it may also be necessary to add transparent proxy exceptions for the subnets utilized by Study Island. This will allow traffic to those subnets to completely bypass the Cipafilter. Transparent proxy exceptions can be added by clicking the "Manage Exceptions" button, which is located beneath your content filtering subnet rules on Version 7 units and on the "Advanced" tab of the Content Filtering page on Version 8 units. The following subnets have been provided by Study Island:

  • 72.249.13.0/26
  • 207.210.237.64/26
  • 207.210.221.128/26
  • 107.21.104.61/32

Your entries should mimic those in the image below. Click "Submit" and then "Save and Apply" to apply the transparent proxy exceptions to your filtering rules.
