Join the IXL Trial Users Tournament—now is your chance to explore everything IXL has to offer and win a prize!

We are hosting a three-week-long contest to see which trial classrooms in the United States can answer the most questions on IXL. Competition will be fierce, so practice from home, at the computer lab, and on your iPads. On May 23, we’ll announce the winning trial classrooms on Facebook—each one will receive a free IXL classroom license for the year!

The contest begins May 1. Enter your class now!

Contest Rules

Eligibility: All participating classrooms must register online by May 21 by clicking here. Teachers must be instructors at a public or private school in the U.S. Teachers should have an active trial subscription, and may not currently have an IXL active account on any classroom or school subscription.

Determination of winners: IXL will select the 3 classrooms that have completed the most questions on IXL between May 1, 2014, at 12:01 am (PST) and May 21, 2014, at 11:59 pm (PST). Winners will be announced on May 23, 2014. Trials may include more than 30 students, but only the data for the top 30 students in each class will be counted. Questions answered for both math and language arts will be counted. Skills that are repeated after they have been mastered once will not be counted. The contest is intended to encourage students to practice their skills and get a real sense of how IXL can help them advance their learning. Any practice that does not conform to the spirit of the contest will be eliminated at IXL’s discretion.

Prizes: Winners will be posted on IXL’s Facebook page on May 23, 2014. Each winning classroom will receive a yearlong 30-student IXL classroom license covering the subject of their choice (value: $199). Limit one prize per teacher. Prizes are non-transferrable.

If a student gets moved from one class to another during the middle of the contest, will they be able to ‘carry’ all of their problems with them?? For example… when you update on May 14, will it show ALL of the problems for their new class’ total that they have done since May 1??

Hi, Lance. As long as the student is not removed from the roster, all practice from that student will be recorded from May 1. Good luck with the contest!

Then something is wrong :-( Our top 30 students have accumulated over 15,000 for sure from May 1 – May 6 (actually 19,000 as of today), we registered for the contest, but we are nowhere to be seen on the leaderboard.

I just checked up on this for you, Lance. The data pulled for this was from May 1st to the early morning of May 6th. Practice data from May 6th onward will be included in the next update. Keep up the good work — your class is doing great!

Thanks for including us!!! :-)

I am trying to teach the kids about running reports, etc….
Is the data for Week 2 inclusive of May 1 – May 13?
When we run it for the top 30 students, we are getting a higher total than what is listed.

Hi, Lance. The data should be for problems completed from May 1 to the early morning of May 14. Only the data for the top 30 students in each class will be counted, and skills that are repeated after they have been mastered once will not be counted. It’s possible the report you’re running includes problems completed in a skill that has been previously mastered. Let us know if you have any other questions!
