Beth Kelly April 15, 2015 at 1:08 pm

I’m not sure why we’re not on the top ten list for elementary schools. I checked the number of problems my ks have done between 3/23/15-4/15/15 and they have completed 10, 019! Would you make sure I registered properly and have not been overlooked?
My kindergarteners, (who have been working so hard) and I thank you!

The IXL Team April 15, 2015 at 1:57 pm

Hi Beth, you’re registered correctly! We’re counting the average number of problems practiced per student, so that may account for the discrepancy.

katrina verge April 16, 2015 at 3:26 pm

How do you find out were you are if you did not make top 20? Would be nice to know where we are ranked.

The IXL Team April 17, 2015 at 8:55 am

Hi Katrina, due to the large number of entries, we’re unable to share rankings beyond the top 20. However, if you want to get a sense of how you compare to the top classrooms, please follow these instructions:

Sign in to your IXL teacher account and visit the “Class Usage Log” report, which can be found by clicking on the “Reports” tab, and then under “Usage.” You can also find it by visiting http://www.ixl.com/reports/usage/class. Once you reach this report, set the time range to between March 23 and present, and select the specific class you want to check. Select “Problems attempted” and click “Update report.” You will see the total number of problems this class has attempted at the bottom of the report. Then, divide this number by the number of students in your class to get the average number of problems per student.

I entered the contest and I’m not sure why we are not listed in the leaderboard. I believe that my class has completed more than what’s listed here. Thank you so much for your help. Perhaps I didn’t register properly?

Hi Carmela, the rankings are based on the average problems per student, so that may be where the discrepancy is!

Marina Shaw April 20, 2015 at 11:38 am

Thank you for such a great opportunity and motivation to improve the students’ skills. Will you differentiate between high school and middle school? The tasks at high school level are more complex, take more time…

The IXL Team April 20, 2015 at 12:10 pm

Hi Marina, thank you for your suggestion! We grouped middle and high school together as we’re still growing our high school user base – but we’ll definitely consider differentiating between them in future contests!

Pandora April 22, 2015 at 9:15 am

Does the contest end tonight at midnight or tomorrow at midnight?

The IXL Team April 22, 2015 at 9:37 am

Hi Pandora – Practice up until 11:59 Pacific on April 22 will be counted!

Karen April 24, 2015 at 9:38 am

What time will you post in Ct.

The IXL Team May 14, 2015 at 9:19 am

Hi there, nice to meet you! We agree math can be challenging sometimes, but it can get easier with practice, especially if you practice on IXL 🙂

Mona Duncan May 3, 2016 at 1:26 pm

Hi, I was checking out your Spring Leaderboard. I am very unhapppy not to see any of my students name because we have exceeded most of the scores on the board. How are scored tallied? My students have worked religiously this school term. They are heart broken. Again, we would like to know why Duncan’s Diamonds isn’t listed .
