I was thrilled with how IXL helped my math students practice their skills last year. My 60 5th grade math students combined to answer 245,000 questions (I have the certificate to prove it.) I’m looking forward to another great year using the IXL site.

Hi Will — We’re so glad to hear it! Keep up the great work!

I’d also like the ability to see, in summary fashion, the Diagnostic score(s) of my students at various points in time. So, a report that shows me what their initial Diagnostic score/level was, and then another column showing me their current score/level (some weeks or months later). Teachers have been requesting this since you instituted the diagnostic in 2017.

Hi Maritza — The Progress and Growth report in IXL Analytics includes this information! On the right-hand side, you’ll see each student’s initial Diagnostic score as well as their current level. See it here:

Is there a test prep skills plan for Language Arts for NWEA MAP?

Hi Camela — Our NWEA MAP skill plans are currently focused on math. We’ll let our team know that you’re interested in seeing Language Arts skill plans for NWEA MAP, as well!
