I also use a variety of the reports at parent-teacher conferences, depending on what I need to discuss with each individual parent.
I use competition in my class a lot, and we openly share how much the students have done on IXL on a weekly basis.
These educators were selected as top teachers based on their students' time spent on IXL.
With more than 400,000 teachers using IXL worldwide, the Elite 100 truly stand out for their innovation, creativity, and passion in motivating their students to succeed.
Also, I love that students get instant feedback on how they are doing and explanations of what they did incorrectly before they move on.
When I used worksheets as homework, students would sometimes complete an entire assignment incorrectly—now they can't do that, as IXL doesn't allow their Smart Score to increase unless they are getting problems correct. For monitoring progress in class, I love the Real-Time Center.Students who completed a certain amount of IXL skills were invited. At the end of the year, they were so motivated to beat the high score, they would do extra IXL skills during their free time.I use IXL in my Honors Algebra class as a replacement for most in-class worksheets and homework, as our school has a 1-1 i Pad initiative.I assign homework from 3rd grade up to even the Geometry level. My students use it every morning for whole class grammar instruction, and several times a week for math reinforcement and homework.We have 1-1 devices, so I use IXL to help me make sure that they understand the concepts that I teach in class. Students will be struggling with a concept that I have taught and retaught again. It helps me figure out what gaps need to be filled and where to send students that need the extra challenge.I have seen huge improvements in a majority of my students.Trouble Spots and the new IXL Diagnostic are really helpful when deciding which direction I need to point individual students in.Parents love it, too, as they can see in the explanation what to do as a quick refresher, and are better able to help their children.Since I started using IXL, I have not had a single student fail to pass the Pennsylvania Keystone Exam at the end of the year, and most receive scores in the advanced range!I also share this with other teachers that also work with my students. I put the students score on the screen with my projector. Last year, I had a class with students that were at a 4th grade level in math all the way to 10th grade.If a student has trouble and their box turns [red], we call out, "Who ya gonna call? IXL allows me to challenge all students and make sure all of my students are progressing.
