Using your skill plan

Once you’ve selected your skill plan, you can use it in a number of different ways depending on what works best in your classroom. Here are some ideas:

  • Choose a skill from the plan and start an IXL Group Jam to go over the topic with the whole class.
  • Assign skills directly through your skill plan and have students practice on their own.
  • As students work on the skill plan, use Live Classroom to monitor your students’ progress in real time.
  • Check for understanding in IXL Analytics. From your skill plan, click “View report” to see the Score Grid and easily check for completion. You can also filter the Trouble Spots report by skill plan to see the precise concepts that students need help with.
