What is IXL?

IXL is personalized learning! Used by more than 11 million students worldwide, IXL is proven to accelerate student achievement. With its comprehensive curriculum, actionable analytics, the Real-Time Diagnostic, and personalized guidance, IXL is able to meet the unique needs of each learner.

So, how does IXL work? Let’s dive in!


IXL’s comprehensive K-12 curriculum provides access to more than 8,500 skills in math, English language arts, science, social studies, and Spanish. By diving into each topic, answering questions, and receiving immediate feedback to correct their mistakes, students build lasting knowledge. As students practice, each skill automatically adjusts in difficulty to make sure they’re being challenged at just the right level to help them grow. And because students have full access to skills in all grade levels, they can always work at the exact level that meets their current needs.


As students learn, IXL Analytics provides up-to-the-minute insights on their progress. Reports not only show what students have worked on, but also pinpoint where they’re succeeding, where they’re having trouble, and how prepared they are to meet learning standards. With IXL Analytics, parents and teachers have what they need to help students do their absolute best.


Built right into IXL, the Real-Time Diagnostic evaluates learners at a deep level to pinpoint their grade-level proficiency in math and English language arts. Then, the diagnostic creates a personalized action plan that guides each student to the exact IXL skills that will boost their growth. Plus, students can always see their own current learning levels, empowering them to take ownership of their education.

Personalized guidance

In addition to their personalized action plan, IXL provides students with their own Recommendations wall full of hand-picked skills to dive into next. These recommendations encourage students to reinforce the basics of tricky topics, try brand-new skills that they’re ready for, and more. Recommendations update as students practice and demonstrate their knowledge, so the wall is always full of new suggestions to help students choose their next steps.

Worldwide access

Learners all over the world can use IXL’s U.S. edition. Plus, IXL has over a dozen international editions with content tailored to meet each country or region’s specific needs.
