IXL Releases 100 Brand New Skills Across All Subjects!

IXL Releases 100 Brand New Skills Across All Subjects!

Just in time for some summer practice.

August 2, 2016


At Home, In the Classroom, For Admins

We’re here to help students continue learning all summer long, and now there’s a hundred new ways they can do so! We’ve just added 100 brand new skills to IXL in language arts, science, social studies, and math. Go to IXL.com to try them out or keep reading for more details.






New language arts skills

We’ve got lots of new middle school content for you; there are 80 new skills for grades 6–8! IXL is expanding coverage of the Common Core writing strand with rigorous skills featuring complex text passages that help students improve their writing and reading comprehension skills.

We’ve also made it easier to find skills that relate to reading comprehension by listing them under a new “Reading Comprehension” category on our language arts topics page.

See all the new skills here, or check out a sample below!

Identify text structures (Grades 6–8)

Students will interact with realistic texts and gain confidence in their ability to understand longer text passages.

New science skills

We’ve added more science content for grades 2–5 with skills covering engineering design, electricity, density, units of measurement, and more! Check out the example below, and try all of our new skills here!

Electric interactions and static electricity (Grades 3–4)

In this new skill, students will learn how electric charges cause objects to attract or repel. And, a new feature called “Try this yourself” encourages students to complete an activity to further explore the topic they just answered a question about.

New social studies skills

Just in time for the 2016 elections, students can now learn to become experts on the presidential electoral process! With IXL, students will be able to understand, and think critically about, the current election. Get a preview of this new skill below, and then head to IXL to practice!

Presidential elections (Grades 3–5)

This skill presents concepts in an age-appropriate manner while still encouraging students to use critical thinking. For example, in this question, students take a look at rhetoric from a campaign and analyze the strategy being used.

New math skills

We’re always working to make sure our content is the best it can be, so we’ve added new and updated math skills from grades 3 through Geometry. Improved graphics and question-specific answer explanations will support students as they work to master Common Core standards. View all of the new and improved skills here.

At what point will science expand to encompass other grade levels? Our school district would be thrilled if it expanded to 8th grade in the near future. Thank you.

Hi Tammy, our team is actively working on science content for grades 6–8. We don’t have a set release date yet, but we’re aiming for sometime this school year.
