 FULL CONTEST RULES

Eligibility: All participating students must register online by August 30 by clicking here. Eligible registrations should include an accurate IXL username–IXL is not responsible for incorrect or incomplete registrations. Students must be part of an active IXL site, classroom, or family membership. Trial members will not be eligible.

Determination of winners: IXL will select the top 3 students from each grade band (PK-4, 5-8, 9-12) that have completed the most questions on IXL between June 1, 2015, at 12:01 am (PST) and August 31, 2015, at 11:59 pm (PST). Winners will be announced on September 4, 2015. To be eligible for a prize, a student must achieve a minimum accuracy of 70% on all eligible questions answered during the contest period. Questions in both math and language arts will be counted. Skills that are repeated after they have been mastered once during the contest period will not be counted. This contest is intended to encourage students to practice their skills and gain confidence in their skills. 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 blog on September 4, 2015. Each winning student will receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (7.0″, 8GB, Wi-Fi).

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I check the number of questions I have attempted?

Sign in to your IXL account and visit the “Usage Log” report, which can be found by clicking on the “Reports” tab, and then listed under “Usage.” You can also find it by visiting https://www.ixl.com/reports/usage/student.

Once you reach this report, set the time range to between June 1 and present, select the subject/s you practiced, and set the grade level to “All.” Then, click “Update report.” You will see a column titled “Problems attempted” and the total problems attempted at the bottom of the report.

 

Are problems for both math and language arts counted?

Yes, practice in both subjects will be counted!

 

Is practice counted starting June 1, or starting when I registered?

Practice will be counted starting June 1, no matter when you registered—just make sure you register here by the deadline of August 30!

 

Will you be posting rankings so we can see where we stand in the competition?

Yes, we will be posting leaderboards of the top students on June 30, July 31, and August 14. The leaderboards will be posted on the IXL blog (https://blog.ixl.com/) and on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/IXL). Winners will be announced September 4.

 

Will IXL count questions for previously mastered skills?

If the skills were mastered prior to the start of the contest, students can go back and practice them again, and those questions will count toward this contest. However, after they master the skill during the contest period, any further practice will not count.

 

Will IXL count incorrectly answered questions? Will questions practiced outside of the students’ grade level be counted?

Yes and yes! We encourage students to practice above or below grade level, and we want them to know that it’s okay to make mistakes and then learn from them. However, practice that is not consistent with the spirit of the contest – such as deliberately answering questions incorrectly – is not permitted.

 

What does it mean that we have to achieve 70% accuracy on all eligible problems?

This means that of all of the problems you attempted, 70 percent of those problems must have been answered correctly. For example, if you practiced 100 problems during the contest period, at least 70 of those problems must have been answered correctly.

To check on your percentage accuracy, visit the Performance by Skill report (https://www.ixl.com/reports/performance/studentbyskill), select the subject/s and grade level/s you practiced, and click “Update report.” Look at the section on the right side of the report that says Problems. Take the total number in the “Problems – Correct” column and divide it by the total number in the “Problems – Total column” to calculate your accuracy percentage.

 

How do I sign up multiple students for the contest?

To register the first student, log into that student’s IXL account and fill out the registration form. To register the second student (and all subsequent students), you must log into each new student’s account and fill out a separate registration form for each student.

I have sent a registration for me but I have not received an email yet.

The IXL Team June 16, 2015 at 2:32 pm

Hi Madison, sometimes it takes several hours for the confirmation email to arrive. Please check again tomorrow (including in your spam folder) for the email. Thanks!

Vina June 16, 2015 at 3:35 pm

Does it only apply to Math or Languages Arts will count as well?

The IXL Team June 17, 2015 at 9:13 am

Practice in both subjects will count!

Santa June 17, 2015 at 10:38 am

Will there be seperate prizes for math and english? Or prize will be decided by counting total questions answered.

The IXL Team June 17, 2015 at 12:03 pm

Hi Santa, there will not be separate prizes for math and language arts; the winners will be determined by the total problems attempted across both subjects!

Juliet Ngwira June 16, 2015 at 3:45 pm

I accidentally chose the wrong grade band, is there a way I can change it?

The IXL Team June 17, 2015 at 9:18 am

Hi Juliet, no problem – please email us at ixl-info@ixl.com with the correct grade band and we can change it for you. Thanks!

suya June 16, 2015 at 8:27 pm

Can you post the rankings more often, maybe once a week? I think the students will be more motivated if they can see where they stand. They get distracted so easy that after a few days, they forget that there’s a contest. Thanks.

The IXL Team June 17, 2015 at 9:15 am

Hi Suya, due to the large number of entries, we are only able to post rankings once a month due to the large amount of data we need to sift through. Thank you for sharing your feedback, and we’ll consider more rankings updates for future contests!

Ragav June 17, 2015 at 3:25 am

Will Language Count as Questions

The IXL Team June 17, 2015 at 9:15 am

Hi Ragav, practice in both math and language arts will be counted!

Maci June 17, 2015 at 8:41 am

am i signed in to the contest???? very confused!!

The IXL Team June 17, 2015 at 9:16 am

Hi Maci, to participate in the contest, simply register on the contest form and start practicing using your IXL account! Your practice will automatically be counted.

Priyanka June 17, 2015 at 9:07 am

I have two ixl loving kids, they are asking can they both win , or only one prize per account
Q 2: Is 70% correct means , 70 % of all questions attempted during the competition? Or 70% of every skill they attempted ?

The IXL Team June 17, 2015 at 9:17 am

Hi Priyanka, as long as your kids have separate IXL logins (i.e. if your subscription covers two children), they are each eligible to win. Hi Rida, the 70% accuracy means that of all of the problems you attempted, 70 percent of those problems must have been answered correctly. For example, if you practiced 100 problems during the contest period, at least 70 of those problems must have been answered correctly.

Santa June 17, 2015 at 1:46 pm

I have a few questions. Are there going to be multiple winners? If there are, are there going to be multiple winners for each grade? Lastly, if there are not going to be multiple winners for each grade, then is there going to be a winner for each grade?

The IXL Team June 18, 2015 at 8:49 am

There will be three winners per three grade bands, for nine winners total.

Raj June 17, 2015 at 7:42 pm

The IXL Team June 18, 2015 at 8:50 am

Of course! Register at ixl.com/summer-contest. Your child’s practice will be counted from June 1, no matter when you register (as long as you sign up by the deadline of August 30).

Junseo June 18, 2015 at 6:41 am

The IXL Team June 18, 2015 at 8:53 am

If you have registered and received a confirmation email, you do not need to sign up again. If you’ve registered but have not received an email, please email ixl-info@ixl.com and we can help you. Thanks!

Enocholaore June 18, 2015 at 6:53 am

Hi I wanted to ask if the incorrect answer count? Thanks

The IXL Team June 18, 2015 at 8:51 am

Yes, because results are based on problems attempted, whether right or wrong. However, practice not conforming to the spirit of the contest, such as deliberately answering questions wrong, is not allowed.

Emily June 18, 2015 at 10:07 am

Hi, I was wondering when and where you guys would post the leaderboard positions. Thank you so much for doing this contest.

The IXL Team June 19, 2015 at 1:05 pm

We will be posting updates on June 30, July 31, and August 14. If you have additional questions, please read the FAQ above. Thanks!

snix June 18, 2015 at 12:41 pm

My son is going into the 5th grade and I entered him in the 5th-8th band, but he is practicing 4th grade skills. Will those count toward a prize?

The IXL Team June 19, 2015 at 1:05 pm

Yes.

Jerry Li June 18, 2015 at 1:42 pm

I accidently submitted my form twice. What will happen because I received two confirmation emails.

The IXL Team June 19, 2015 at 1:05 pm

No problem, we will eliminate the duplicate registration.

Archelus June 18, 2015 at 1:49 pm

When I sign in, it only gives me the option of one child and not the other! I signed up 2 kids and got 2 emails. What do I do? Please help me.

The IXL Team June 19, 2015 at 1:06 pm

Please email ixl-info@ixl.com and we can help figure it out. Thanks!

J.R. Foster June 18, 2015 at 2:08 pm

Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Precalculus, will all those be counted in the High School contest(9-12)?

The IXL Team June 19, 2015 at 1:06 pm

Yup!

Natalie Karlsson June 19, 2015 at 8:00 am

Can I start another grade too? Or would that one have to be registered instead, because I’m entering 8th grade but my math teacher was really bad in 7th grade…can I review 7th grade with it still counting?

The IXL Team June 19, 2015 at 1:07 pm

Yes, you can definitely practice in other grade levels!

Junseo June 19, 2015 at 12:03 pm

I don’t think i received an email. so when i send an email to ixl-info@ixl.com do i use my email account or my parents. also can you guys check if i’m registered because i am very confused. Thank you

The IXL Team June 19, 2015 at 1:08 pm

Please give us the email associated with the IXL account (likely your parents’). Thanks!

Emily June 19, 2015 at 1:34 pm

Deepika June 20, 2015 at 10:00 am

Dear Sir,
we have registered for this competition on 20th June only. But we are practicing IXL from first June itself. Those questions also consider for this competition.

The IXL Team June 22, 2015 at 9:23 am

Hi Deepika – all practice between June 1 and August 31 will be counted, regardless of when you registered!

Jean Meloul June 20, 2015 at 11:12 am

I registered 2 kids, but my account is for 1 child only. Why did you accept the second child when she can not win? I know this from reading the comments of other people.

The IXL Team June 22, 2015 at 9:52 am

Hi Jean, correct, in order to be eligible to participate, each child must have his or her own IXL account. If you’d like to consider upgrading your membership, please give us a call toll free at (855) 255-8800 and we can assist you!

deepika June 20, 2015 at 6:09 pm

Dear Sir,
is this contest is only for USA students? I have enrolled IXL from OMAN.

The IXL Team June 22, 2015 at 9:23 am

Hi Deepika, the contest is open to all IXL subscribers worldwide!

sasman1964 June 21, 2015 at 11:51 am

Malina June 22, 2015 at 11:54 am

Hi,
I signed up two kids, but the have the same login information, are they still legible to be in the contest?

The IXL Team June 22, 2015 at 2:54 pm

Hi Malina, in order to be eligible to participate, each child must have his or her own IXL account. If you’d like to consider upgrading your membership to include two students, please give us a call toll free at (855) 255-8800 and we can assist you!

Malina June 25, 2015 at 11:31 am

But they both have membership

The IXL Team June 25, 2015 at 3:50 pm

Hi Malina, apologies, we misunderstood your original question! Yes, both of your children can participate and we will be able to count their practice separately.

Malina June 26, 2015 at 10:56 am

Thank you. 🙂

Bob June 23, 2015 at 9:56 am

If you chose grade 5-8 but you do algbra1 and 9th grade will they count?

The IXL Team June 23, 2015 at 11:00 am

Yes, they will count!

Candace June 23, 2015 at 4:34 pm

Does a second grader have as good as a chance to win as a fourth grader in the same grade bracket “pre-k – 4th”? I ask because when I showed this contest to my second grader he responded with, “Don’t sign me up, I wouldn’t win anyways because the kids in bigger grades know more and would be able to answer more questions than me” Is there a prize for the top student in “each” grade within each grade bracket?

The IXL Team June 24, 2015 at 9:43 am

Hi Candace, for this contest we are awarding the top three students in each grade band, but we’ll consider individual grade level categories for future contest. Thank you for sharing your feedback!

Sangmi June 23, 2015 at 5:03 pm

I signed my child up about two weeks ago but have not gotten a confirmation email. I have tried again just a few minutes ago. Is there a problem with the system? Or does it take longer than a few weeks?

The IXL Team June 24, 2015 at 9:41 am

Hi Sangmi, please email info-ixl@ixl.com and we can check if you are registered. Thanks!

The IXL Team June 24, 2015 at 9:45 am

Hi Sangmi, please send us an email at ixl-info@ixl.com and we can check whether you are registered. Thanks!

Joshua June 24, 2015 at 10:27 am

Hi, so If my child is going to 9th grade ,can he only do 9th grade questions or can he do 8th grade or 10th grade questions or can he do any grade level. Also, if my child mastered a skill before the contest started can he redo the skill after the contest starts and still be counted for those questions?

The IXL Team June 24, 2015 at 12:24 pm

He can practice skills in any grade level, and he can re-master old skills – however, once the skill has been mastered once during the contest period, further practice on that skill will not be counted.

Conor June 24, 2015 at 12:55 pm

Do we have to finish the subject in order for the questions to count? And I am having trouble realizing how many questions I have done that have count towards the contest.

The IXL Team June 24, 2015 at 2:14 pm

Hi Conor, basically all of your questions will count! The exception is if you have already mastered a skill once during the contest period, further practice on that skill will not be counted. Additionally, practice that does not conform to the spirit of the contest, such as deliberately answering all of your questions wrong, is not allowed.

Salma hassan June 24, 2015 at 3:08 pm

I want to now what place I am in or if you can do the contest with only 5 skills left

The IXL Team June 25, 2015 at 9:21 am

Hi Salma, unfortunately due to the large number of people participating in the contest, we aren’t able to everyone know where they stand, but we will be posting lists of the top 20 every month! Also, you can practice skills outside your skill level for the contest – we encourage you to try skills in the next grade level above yours!

Joshua June 25, 2015 at 10:12 am

Hi, one more question I registered my child into the contest, but I never got a confirmation email. Can I register him again? or can you tell me if I have already registered? And if I do register, then I find out I actually did register , will my first registration get deleted or what?

The IXL Team June 25, 2015 at 3:43 pm

Hi Joshua, please email ixl-info@ixl.com and we can confirm whether your son is registered. Thanks!

clare June 25, 2015 at 11:47 am

if someone wins how will you deliver the samsung galaxy to them

The IXL Team June 25, 2015 at 3:48 pm

Prizes will be mailed to the receipients!

Preethi June 25, 2015 at 5:21 pm

How will I know the number of questions answered?

The IXL Team June 26, 2015 at 7:15 am

Hi Preethi, the first question in our FAQ, located here at http://blog.ixl.com/2015/06/16/study-in-the-sun-usage-contest-faqs/, contains instructions to calculate how many questions you have answered!

Caroline Teeple June 25, 2015 at 7:56 pm

When I registered my children I registered them using both their first and last names, but on IXL they are listed by just their first name. Will this be a problem? Does the registered name need to exactly match the name on IXL?

The IXL Team June 26, 2015 at 7:13 am

Hi Caroline, that should be no problem!

Garima June 26, 2015 at 6:54 am

I registered my son but did a wrong grade level…so registered again in the right level again…so is he registered twice now??… how do i check his grade level now??

The IXL Team June 26, 2015 at 7:13 am

Hi Garima, please email ixl-info@ixl.com and we can check for you. Thanks!

Monica June 26, 2015 at 12:50 pm

I have just registered my students into the contest, however I chose the wrong grade. They have just finished 4th grade, and I signed them up in the bracket “pre-k to 4th”, what should I do now? Will they participate anyway? How are they supposed to answer questions from grades they haven´t been into yet?? I was wondering if it is ok to let them in that section, but ask them to give it a try in further grades?? What would you recommend?

The IXL Team June 26, 2015 at 4:54 pm

Hi Monica, please email ixl-info@ixl.com and we can change the registration for you. Students can practice in any grade level, but we definitely encourage them to try skills in higher grade levels if they feel up for a challenge!

Shilpi June 26, 2015 at 8:28 pm

My kids have subscribed only for maths … If they are answering only maths question… Is that ok

The IXL Team June 29, 2015 at 9:23 am

Yes, that’s perfectly fine!

Curtis June 27, 2015 at 8:56 am

What happens if I want to change my current profile username? Will this delete my progress on this profile and/or erase my current registration for this contest?

The IXL Team June 29, 2015 at 9:23 am

As long as the email associated with your IXL account is the same, you’re fine!

shakhawat June 28, 2015 at 1:39 pm

Does IXL have comon core?

The IXL Team June 29, 2015 at 9:26 am

Our skills are fully aligned to the Common Core standards!

Hannah June 28, 2015 at 1:40 pm

Also, if i do, where do they practice? Is there like a certain place or is it just the same account we normally use and ixl will record any updated practice???

The IXL Team June 29, 2015 at 9:27 am

Students simply practice on IXL as usual and their practice is automatically counted! Leaderboards will be posted here on our blog on the dates listed above in the FAQ.

James June 28, 2015 at 3:33 pm

How many questions have people done so far?

The IXL Team June 29, 2015 at 9:28 am

We don’t have that information right now, but we will be posting a leaderboard update tomorrow, so stay tuned!

Phương Anh June 29, 2015 at 6:19 am

Yes, it does!

Milee Patel June 30, 2015 at 7:15 pm

I accidently registered the wrong grades (5-8), I am going to (9-12). Can you change it for me or do I just have to deal with it. Please get back to me because I’m not sure what to do now. Thanks so much for this opportunity!

The IXL Team July 1, 2015 at 9:57 am

Hi Milee, please email ixl-info@ixl.com and we can help. Thanks!

Ixl User July 1, 2015 at 11:28 am

Can u practice any grade level u want or do u have to do specific grade levels for this contest?

The IXL Team July 1, 2015 at 2:46 pm

We encourage you to practice the skills that you feel would help you the most, in any grade level! However, practice not conforming to the spirit of the contest, such as deliberately only practicing in lower grade levels, is not permitted.

Anish July 2, 2015 at 12:54 pm

If I do questions in common core,will they still count?

The IXL Team July 6, 2015 at 9:22 am

Yes, of course!

Jenny July 6, 2015 at 2:24 pm

Does it count doing all grade level questions for math and reading even though I entered the “5~8” grade level for the contest? (I really want to win the prize.. Please understand..)

The IXL Team July 6, 2015 at 2:33 pm

Yes, we encourage IXL students to practice any skill they feel is helpful to them; however, practice not in keeping with the spirit of the contest is not allowed. Thanks!

william July 14, 2015 at 8:46 pm

how long will it ship for the tablet?

The IXL Team July 15, 2015 at 9:29 am

Hi William, winners will be notified in early September via email if they win, and we will gather their shipping information at that point.

Kaushikprudhvi Challa July 21, 2015 at 12:50 pm

Will you disqualify students based on all of their questions deliberately or mistakendly answered wrong or the first time it goes back and forth constantly?
( Please understand, I would like the tab)

The IXL Team July 21, 2015 at 12:59 pm

We will disqualify participants who are found to be practicing in a way that does not conform to the spirit of the contest. Honest mistakes made while practicing are fine – learning from your errors is part of the learning process!

wait so, if you’re having a hard time for the first time, and it takes you quite an amount of every 2 right to 1 wrong and then finally ending the skill, will get disqualified for the first time you do it, or based on all of the questions by the time of the next leaderboard update?

Hi there, as long as you are practicing honestly and within the spirit of the contest, you have nothing to worry about!

Will the prizes be delivered with free shipping?
And can I do all grade levels and still win?
And for every grade group are there 3 winners?
I registered for 2 grades because I am helping
my little sister on some of the the tough math problems.
The grades are (pre-k to 4th grade) and
(5th to 8th grade) Is that ok?
Thanks
P.S. (Please respond quickly because I am very interested in the contest)

Hi Kuttan,

To answer your questions in order:

Will the prizes be delivered with free shipping? – We will pay for shipping on all prizes.
And can I do all grade levels and still win? – Problems practiced in all grade levels will count.
And for every grade group are there 3 winners? – Yes, there are three winners for every grade group.
I registered for 2 grades because I am helping my little sister on some of the the tough math problems. The grades are (pre-k to 4th grade) and (5th to 8th grade) Is that ok? – I’m sorry to say this is not okay. Students must be registered in only one grade band to be eligible for the contest. Additionally, to be eligible, students may not share a single account.

I hope that clarifies things for you.

even if you did not get into the top 20 can you still get into the top twenty by doing more questions then the others?

The IXL Team August 5, 2015 at 5:10 pm

Yes

I see some pictures on the right side of this page of whoever has completed 10000 math problems .Are those 10000 problems only from one grade or multiple grade?

The IXL Team August 5, 2015 at 4:59 pm

Those certificates are automatically generated when a student has completed 10,000 math problems on IXL. It can be from one grade or multiple grades.

Zeeshaan August 6, 2015 at 9:42 am
