Start a friendly competition with IXL Leaderboards

Teachers have a new way to motivate students: IXL Leaderboards! Now, teachers can set up personalized competitions to compete over total questions answered, skills mastered, time spent on IXL, and more. Leaderboards are a fun way to get students excited to work in the curriculum.

IXL Leaderboard Rankings

How to use Leaderboards

Teachers can create a new Leaderboard by going to the Awards tab in the ‘Learning’ section while signed in to IXL, and clicking the “Leaderboard” link.

When setting up a Leaderboard, teachers can personalize what the competition will be based on, the duration of the competition, and which subjects and grade level skills will count.

Once created, Leaderboards display the standing of each participant, their specific scores, and the amount of time left in the competition.

Both students and teachers can look at the Leaderboard at any time to see the rankings, and refresh the page to view the most up-to-date scores.

There are so many ways to use Leaderboards in your classroom! Create a Leaderboard for a race to see who can answer the most questions correctly in 15 minutes, or hold a regular week-long competition with a prize to reward the student who can master the most skills.

Challenge your students to try their best for the number one rank, and fire up their competitive spirits with IXL Leaderboards!
