How to use IXL for learning recovery

Student knowledge levels are likely to vary even more widely this fall, following a year of disrupted learning, so effectively differentiating instruction will be key to student success. 

If you have learners who have fallen behind in your classroom, here’s how you can use IXL to recover unfinished learning and get students back on track. 

Diagnose unfinished learning

A critical component of any learning recovery strategy is understanding what students already know and what they’re ready to learn now. Use IXL’s Real-Time Diagnostic to assess students’ grade-level proficiency in math and language arts, so you can quickly identify knowledge gaps. The initial diagnostic takes just 45 minutes to complete per subject, and once it’s done, each student will receive a personalized action plan, which you can use to tailor instruction!

Prioritize standards-based instruction

After pinning down knowledge levels, provide tailored and sustained support with IXL’s comprehensive curriculum to ensure students master essential skills. 

Start by finding the skill plan that matches your state standards. You can differentiate your instruction by assigning skills to individual students, targeting their specific areas of need

Make data-driven decisions

IXL makes it easy for you to use data to power learning recovery and make individualized adjustments to instruction. Hop over to IXL Analytics and explore the easy-to-use reports to identify trouble spots, understand how learners performed on skills, and track student progress over time. Use the Trouble Spots report to identify groups of students struggling with the same concepts, prioritize the biggest problem areas, and then break students into leveled groups.
