“I am 13, I have Aspergers Syndrome, and I found it hard to do maths and other subjects in mainstream school. I am homeschooled and can deal with the other subjects now, but the math curriculum was still impossible for me. IXL is the best thing since sliced bread! Well, maybe that's exaggerating, but seriously, If you have a special needs kid of any age, or you're a parent or teacher, give IXL a shot. I love IXL, and now I love maths! Much to my mom's delight!”
Jessica R., year 6 student, Gillingham, Dorset
“My daughter loves the awards and is very keen to see what she has obtained after her hard work!”
Angela D., parent, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk

Peter W., parent, Lymington, Hampshire
“I am a mum and my son has made excellent progress through your web site. It is really a good web site where parents can learn as well.”
Sidra M., parent, Hayes
“Half way through the school year, we could tell our daughter wasn't mastering the math skills she needed. After just three weeks, her comprehension and confidence are definitely growing. I would recommend IXL to any parent who is concerned about their child's progress.”
Jim Buffington, parent, Plano, Texas, U.S.A.
“My six-year-old son is very bright in reading, writing, and other areas and is easily reading at a 2nd grade level if not above. The one area he struggles in is math. But with IXL, I can see some improvement in his math skills already. I like the fact that he can access it from home and practice it. I also like the fact that I can check on his progress. This is an invaluable tool that I can use to help further his education. Thank you, IXL, and thank you, Kenden Elementary, for providing this program for my son.”
Lee Klekotka, parent, Lansing, Michigan, U.S.A.
“I love how the awards section gives you an award, because then you can actually feel proud about completing an activity! I also love that the questions go from easy to hard! It is fun learning in IXL, and when my mom says to do some studying, I go directly to IXL!”
Faria, 5th grade student, Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A.
“IXL has helped me a vast amount because it took my grades from C's and D's to B's, and I'm working on getting them to A's. I was pretty sure my teacher was going to ask me to drop down from algebra and go to accelerated math, but I got help from IXL before that happened.”
Aneesha, 7th grade student, Austin, Texas, U.S.A.
“This program takes the frustration out of math because it allows the student to practice at his/her own pace and stay focused. It's okay if you mark one wrong because another one will be waiting. This is a great tool to have.”
Annette, parent of a 4th grader, California, U.S.A.
“I am a 6th grader who absolutely despised math. I would try and fail and fail. But IXL has helped me tremendously.”
Andrew N., student, Bradford, Tennessee, U.S.A.
“I like the prize board because it is encouraging, and also the fun encouraging comments you get when you solve a problem. IXL is an exceptional website, and it is good for all ages. I would recommend it to all of my friends. It's really dynamic and engaging.”
Bellatrix, year 8 student, Perth, Western Australia, Australia
“When I got on IXL, I was hoping that IXL could help me improve on every subject (which it has). IXL has been great. IXL has helped a lot because before our class has even been taught the subject I already know whats happening.”
Benjamin, year 8 student, Ourimbah, New South Wales, Australia
“Because of IXL I am now in the top math class! IXL has helped enormously because I would start and not want to stop. IXL gets you intrigued and that's coming from a year 9 student.”
Jessica M., year 9 student, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
“We like the rewards and certificates; our children work very hard to receive these! The reports are also brilliant in keeping us informed of the levels our children have reached and where they need extra help.”
Linda Rindfleish, parent, Coolah, New South Wales, Australia
“IXL really boosted my junior high daughter's confidence in math – so much so that I asked my school if I could get a subscription for my math classes.”
Susan White, special education teacher, Morris, Illinois, U.S.A.
“I love the Awards thing — how you get to win prizes — because it's fun and it makes me want to get up from 5:00AM in the morning to do IXL. And I love the setting of it, it feels very comfortable and I understand when I get a question wrong.”
Morgana, year 5 student, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
“I have one daughter in First Class, and we love IXL. And as a result she is quite good at maths.”
Karen Purtell, parent, Dublin, Ireland
“My son has come in 2nd in his school because of practicing maths in IXL.”
Yasmin, parent, Karachi, Pakistan
“I get kids of all ages, but the one thing they have in common is a lack of parental interest in their education. This program has helped them build skills and gain confidence in a way they never have before. It really helps turn them around. It takes the hardest subject and helps them excel.”
Tobi, foster parent, Avon, Indiana, U.S.A.
“Getting to the basics and working up from there in small steps and not leaps — I find IXL supports this very well.... I saw a vast improvement in my older child's fraction answering.”

Lane B., year 6 student, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
“My son struggled with math last year in second grade and scored "Below Basic" on California's STAR test. His overall math performance was in the 28th percentile. We found IXL online, and this year, he is in the 92nd percentile in math. He enjoys going to school, he loves doing his homework, and overall I think he is just a happier, more confident kid.”
Vanessa Y., parent, Hayward, California, U.S.A.
“As a parent, I love IXL. My son thinks it is another computer game. He loves the game board, with the stars and awards. What an incentive for the kids to look forward to! My preschooler is so excited to fill in all the award spots. It is just awesome.”
Lucia, parent, Silver Spring, Maryland, U.S.A.
“My son has gone from a low D at the end of the 2nd quarter to a low B this quarter. There is still room for him to improve, but he sees the results, and he can see the extra work and time he spends on IXL has had a positive impact on his grade. His overall attitude towards math has also improved, and he no longer is discouraged at his ability to understand and solve the problems in class.”
Lynn Payne, parent, Sahuarita, Arizona, U.S.A.
“This program is awesome. I have three young children enrolled and they fight over who gets to use the computer to work on their math.”

Amy, student, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
“I just wanted to compliment you all on such a great math program. My oldest child LOVES IXL. I've pulled her out of school to homeschool her, and the IXL reports have been invaluable! It makes it so easy for me to add her grades to my grading spreadsheet and to see her improvement. I love that you provide that information — it really makes a difference for a new homeschooler!”
Janeen B., teacher, parent, and homeschooler, Wiley, Colorado, U.S.A.
“My favorite features about IXL are the awards. This is my favorite because as you keep progressing then you get new achievements and pictures representing what you have accomplished. IXL has been really helpful because now I can practice things that I have learned. This has improved my grades in school a lot.”
Ian C., 8th grade student, Redmond, Washington, U.S.A.
“I love that my son and his classmates want to spend time practicing math!”

Raene, 6th grade student, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.
“Thanks to IXL, the kids catch on in minutes – versus when Mom would try to work through it with them with lots of frustration.”
Carrie E., parent, Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
“I like how the reports show comprehensive coverage of everything you do on IXL. Also, the syllabus-aligned skills are great.”
Adithyan, 6th grade student, Trivandrum, Kerala, India
“I was hoping that I could become more patient while solving problems, because although I know the concepts extremely well and could solve problems easily, whenever I got a problem wrong it was because of the stupidest of mistakes. Despite being in Class VI, the occasional wrong multiplication or missing carry-over could bring my downfall. IXL has made my grades skyrocket as I make fewer silly mistakes.”
Eshan S., student, Pune, Maharashtra, India
“My daughter is an amazing learner. She was always first in her class and math was her favorite subject. She had to change schools and she struggled for the whole year with math until she found this site. Her improvement has been stellar.”
Vandana, parent, Bangalore, Karnataka, India
“I can see that my daughter, who uses IXL, has mastered simple addition already, while her school has just started on this topic. This boosts her confidence in school. Also, she can focus on newer stuff.”
Vidhya M., parent, Bangalore, India
“I was starting to do badly in Math, and I went on your site and did about an hour's worth of lessons each day and started to realize that I was really improving. From an 80% I went to a 100%!”
Sara, 7th grade student, U.S.A.
“My daughter's math grade has improved from a B to a high A. Thank you!!!”

“Ixl.com has been an amazing tool to help my son get caught up with the curriculum he needs for his grade level after he fell behind in his math.”
Michael Picavet, parent, Bradford, Ontario, Canada
“I believe this program has made our daughter a stronger math student and has given her the ability and desire to want to be challenged and successful in math. In school, third grade word problems with the hidden concept of 'solve for X' was her most challenging concept. But getting extra word problems from the IXL program really helped.”
Annette, parent, Corona, California, U.S.A.
“I love IXL. It really helps me focus on my learning in math. I feel like my education has come a long way since before I knew about IXL.”

Paloma G., 5th grade student, Huntington Beach, California, U.S.A.
“I have a 21-year-old daughter with a learning disability and I'm always checking for educational games on the internet. IXL came up today and I checked out some of the exercises and I'm thrilled! It's got what I've been looking for for years: repetition at the same level of difficulty until mastery is achieved. There are many sites with interesting games, but until now I had never found one site that brought the 'practice makes it perfect' advantage to life.”
Hilda Maia, parent, João Pessoa, Paraíba, Brazil
“IXL's really been helping me with my math. I've been getting better grades and understanding the stuff too. Thank you for this program!”

“I'm a retired elementary teacher. I help my grandchildren by providing access to your wonderful program. The format is so neat, organized and attractive. I love the layout, and that students are encouraged to think and not guess. I like that IXL shows them what they should have answered with quick, to-the-point explanations. GREAT PROGRAM!!”
Alma H., parent, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

Ellen S., parent, Hampton, Virginia, U.S.A.
“I love: (1) The parent pages - being able to see my son's progress, trouble spots, time spent, problems he's done, etc. I feel that I am able to gain insight into how and what he's doing in math! (2) The game board concept! Today he got so excited because he got a guitar! I LOVED IT! THANK YOU! (3) I also LOVE the variety of math problems you have here. There are easy AND challenging problems, and it's great for him to have both!”
Stacey Dionne, parent of a 3rd grader, Plainville, Connecticut, U.S.A.
“My children (grades PK and 1) are really embracing using the site for extended periods of time without any pushing from me. I will certainly spread the word for this site. I LOVE it!”
Julia Formichella Teel, parent, Norwalk, Connecticut, U.S.A.
“I love that you can do so many different lessons. It's amazing! I also like that you can challenge yourself and do a higher grade level. Most of all I love that you can earn online virtual prizes and that you can change the character on top. I love IXL more than any other boring learning website.”
Erin, 4th grade student, Temecula, California, U.S.A.
“I really like how the score increase/decrease is dependent on the current score. It quickly goes up to give kids some confidence. But it requires a lot right in a row without mistakes to get to mastery.”
Mike J., parent, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
“IXL is engaging for my preschoolers! The colors, the interactive features with the prizes...my kids love math now!”
Opal Betton, parent, Woodinville, Washington, U.S.A.
“I am a student and I used to be weak at maths but after using IXL I am now getting good in maths and starting liking it too. Thanks IXL!”
Maryam A., student, Islamabad, Pakistan
“I was looking for math websites online when I came across IXL. I have 6 and 8 year old grandsons. I noticed when they started in their current grade level, they were struggling and getting frustrated, so I set them both back a grade. The older has almost completed the first grade lessons. He is just happier, and more confident; he said that his teacher told him “You're good at math”. He also said that there is only one boy in his class that is better at math than him. I cannot stress enough how IXL has boosted their knowledge of math with very little work on their part. It is by far the best money that I have spent on anything; you have a loyal customer for at least the next 10 years. Thanks again, you make my job as a grandparent so much easier.”
Gary Brewer, grandparent, Sapulpa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.
“This website has bumped my grade level from an 85% to a 95% in Math.”

Kalpana Sajeev, parent of a 5th grader, Edison, New Jersey, U.S.A.
“Since I homeschool, I'm always looking for a variety of subjects that appeal to specific grade levels. Math is of a particular concern. With IXL, I like that I can look at my state's educational standards by grade level, and I LOVE that I can compare it to other states! I can hold my own classroom to the highest levels of standards this way.”
Meshele T., parent, Raymond, Mississippi, U.S.A.
“I tutor my son at home using IXL. I am seeing a great improvement in his attitude and confidence level.”

D. Anand, parent, Frisco, Texas, U.S.A.
“This is a wonderful site. I always spend a lot of time trying to help my kids at school and after I found this site, everything became easier. The kids love studying, they have motivation, and they are learning every day.”
Maite L., parent, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
“I am a home schooling mother of three little girls. My oldest is 5 and is a kindergartener. She enjoys math very much and is working at a much faster pace at it than others her age. My middle one is 4 and a pre-schooler. This website has been much help to her as she begins to learn her basics. And my youngest is only 2 but learning so much from her older sisters. I am very fond of your website.”
Bianca Garcia, parent, Azusa, California, U.S.A.
“This program is so helpful and amazing that I have repeatedly thought and said this was the best site I've ever purchased a membership for.”
Theresa T., parent, Glendale, California, U.S.A.
“I was hoping IXL would make learning less hard and more fun — and that I would see my kids get higher grades by themselves, not by me pushing them. IXL has already helped with this, so thanks, IXL. I feel proud of my kids.”
Taylor, parent, Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A.
“I really like IXL. My kids are learning more maths from this site and now they are excellent in maths. This site helps my kids in so many ways. They learn more and more.”
Fazlina H., parent, Kandy, Sri Lanka

Elizabeth C., parent and math teacher, Gilbert, Arizona, U.S.A.
“My old 3rd grade teacher said that her child loved IXL and told me I should try it, so my mom signed me up and I love it!”
Anna, 4th grade student, Oviedo, Florida, U.S.A.
“I LOVE IXL!!! At first my grades were really low and then I won a medal for getting 99th percentile in the MAPS test. I also won certificates for SUPER IXL STUDENT almost every month. At first I didn't like math but now I LOVE it. My mom convinced our teachers to get the subscription for the whole school and they did.”
Heba A., 4th grade student, Inner Grove Heights, Minnesota, U.S.A.
“Over the summer my daughter completed 35% of IXL's 4th grade curriculum before she even started 4th grade! She loves math and IXL and enjoys playing with IXL for fun. My son struggles with math. While he isn't in any advanced math classes yet, he is getting mostly A's in general math so far. It has really built his confidence. And the ease at which he can step down a grade to review really hard concepts has been very beneficial.”
Jill Holdstock, parent, Shelby Township, Michigan, U.S.A.
“I love cats and I also love IXL because it's the awesomest website ever. I think that it has improved and helped me tremendously.”
Isabelle K., 5th grade student, Lexington, Kentucky, U.S.A.
“Knowing the boys were behind in certain areas, I was able to go back two grade levels with IXL and start working from that point in their problem areas. The boys love the “ribbons” and the “reward chart.” I like how they always get a “100” in the end AND that the explanations are there to help when the answer is not correct. I can tell that both boys are now feeling more confident about returning to school and facing “math.” Their understanding in their problem areas has greatly increased. I am so amazed and thankful that this site exists. It has been a God-send to me and my grandsons. As a former teacher, I recognize all the work that went into this site and praise you for how comprehensive it is!”
Sue Nies, grandparent and retired teacher, Shoreline, Washington, U.S.A.
“My children have done very well on the standardized tests — in part because of the practice they get here. The exercises are fun, and the gratification instant when the child masters a new skill.”
Tawn E., parent, Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A.
“I love everything about IXL. It's a well thought-out program that is hard to beat. I have learning-challenged children that do better with the computer versus pencil and paper, so this is fun for them. The explanation is right there for any wrong answer, and it plain and simple reinforces math concepts. Oh, a big plus is that it is affordable.”
Lyn, parent, San Antonio, Texas, U.S.A.
“They have improved tremendously and gained a lot of confidence. IXL has become a morning ritual in our household.”
Lavanya V., parent, Sugar Hill, Georgia, U.S.A.

Carol M., parent, Hilo, Hawaii, U.S.A.
“I am completely loving every bit of this site. I love the certificates my granddaughter earns, the weekly report showing her progress, etc., etc. By the way, she loves it as well.”

Uma Maheswari Rajagopalan, parent, Tokorozawa, Japan
“I love the reward system and the fact that when they give a wrong answer the system deducts marks. It is frustrating for my son, but he learns to make sure that he gives the correct answer. He understands the maths much better and enjoys doing his homework.”
Wilna de Kock, parent, Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa
“IXL is fantastic. It is extremely useful in helping review and practice math and language arts. It is a great systematic approach which keeps us organized and on task.”

Kirsten A., 5th grade student, Dumfries, Virginia, U.S.A.
“Math is the subject I need practice in and our school got IXL. I was happy because I heard there were virtual prizes which made me excited. My grades have gone from C's to B's to A's, and I'm a straight A student now because of IXL.”
Alex M., 5th grade student, Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
“IXL has helped me understand the problems I get wrong. I feel that it is not important to get the work done quickly, but to understand the problem. Whenever I get something wrong, IXL gives me a full detailed explanation. That helps me do better on tests and quizzes. ”
Alexandra, 8th grade student, State College, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

Andrea Garcia, parent, Deltona, Florida, U.S.A.
“Im a 7th grader and I have been using IXL for 3 years now. I really think that IXL helps. My favorite subjects on IXL are geometry and precalculus. In 4th grade I started using IXL and it has improved my grades a lot!”
Aryonna B., 7th grade student, Lemon Grove, California, U.S.A.
“I love IXL because it helps me prepare for hard tests at school! I love how it shows you what you did wrong instead of just giving you the answer.”
Ash S., student, Westborough, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
“I'm a student but I think this is the best way to learn because it has so many ways to practice and contains all the math I need. You go home and easily log in. I love IXL. I learned so many techniques that boosted my grade up to an A.”
Asha H., high school freshman, Richfield, Minnesota, U.S.A.
“I love how easy it is for the girls to use, and how they can read or hear the questions that is a HUGE bonus.”

Barbara Martinez, grandparent, Barstow, California, U.S.A.
“My 7th grade daughter was having difficulty in math this year. She barely passed her midterm in math. She practiced on IXL a lot to prepare for the final. She got an 87%. She couldn't have done it without IXL! Thank you. IXL has also boosted her confidence in math. She now realizes that she can handle math class.”
Beth Fazzone, 2nd grade teacher and parent of a 7th grader, Latham, New York, U.S.A.
“I'm in 6th grade and IXL is awesome. Last year I made horrible grades in math, but now I'm a super genius. Compared to last year, I have very high grades now.”
Brandon F., 6th grade student, Oxford, Alabama, U.S.A.

Brendon, high school student, Jeffersonville, Indiana, U.S.A.
“First off, I LOVE IXL. I can't imagine teaching without it. It is a cornerstone of my daily lesson and is the perfect tool for differentiation...all my students get to practice on the skill at THEIR level! I can't say enough how much I love IXL and how beneficial it has been for my students and myself. For the most part, we use it everyday in class for math and several times a week for language arts, and I know that there's no way I'd be able to serve my students half as well without the aid of IXL! ”
Brittany Parrett, 5th grade teacher, Terre Haute, Indiana, U.S.A.
“I love how when you get a problem wrong IXL tells you exactly how to do the problem so you can get the next problem right. It's also cool that you know right away if you got it right. With paper homework you don't know and keep doing it wrong. It's also really cool how you can always go back and improve your grade. Other programs make it so you can only work until a set due date and never get more practice. It is so much better this way.”
Caroline M., 8th grade Integrated Algebra student, New York, U.S.A.
“I originally started using IXL math. Now, I love the language arts section of IXL the best. My daughter has truly benefited from this section. This subject was her weakest and I always had a hard time finding ways to challenge my daughter in this area. lXL is the perfect website for my daughter. Because of IXL my daughter is in the gifted program. My son entered kindergarten on a first grade math level because of IXL.”
Chanel Westmoreland, parent of 2, Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A.
“Our son has grown to LOVE math! He is presently taking 10th grade geometry at his school and is doing great ('A' student in math!) Thank you, IXL! We owe it all to you!”

My daughter loves to practice her math skills and I'm glad she has an organized lesson plan to do so.”
Diana Pemberton, parent, Spring, Texas, U.S.A.
“My son has been doing IXL since first grade and really likes it. I like the organization of IXL along the lines of the Common Core because it corresponds to what is being taught at school.

His math grades have remained high due to IXL and various other educational efforts at school and home.”
Dr. Ayanava Majumdar, parent, Auburn, Alabama, U.S.A.

I have been using the program since I was 8 years old, and in three years, this program has already added new grades that I like to challenge myself with, like Algebra I & II and Geometry. I am really excited to start using the language arts portion of IXL. I used IXL, I'm using IXL, and I will use IXL. I might even pass it on to my children and see how much it improved over the years. My favorite IXL features are the awards and the reports. I think that the awards motivate younger children to stay with IXL until they learn that you don't need a sticker to learn, you actually want to!”
Jaxon K., student, Pompano Beach, Florida, U.S.A.

Joselyn, 8th grade student, Frisco, Texas, U.S.A.
“IXL has had a huge impact on my grades. In math I used to get D's and C's. After I started using IXL, I got A's. I improved so much my teacher thought I was getting the answers from someone else. I showed her IXL and she got the whole class an account because I told her it would really help.”
Kae'Lani, 5th grade student, Vancouver, Washington, U.S.A.
“My oldest son used IXL for years to practice math skills; now my youngest is using it through his school.

My son has disabilities, but because IXL offers the audio feature for 1st grade, he's able to do homework unassisted.”
Kari Popovic, parent of a 4th grader, Petaluma, California, U.S.A.
“I like how there are no gimmicks or distractions. It helps me to learn and get less impatient when it's straightforward. IXL has made things easier to understand.”
Kaysie S., student, Sarasota, Florida, U.S.A.
“I was hoping that IXL could help me improve in math, specifically in geometry and fractions, but it also helped me with language arts. I like the awards.

Keona L., 5th grade student, Cupertino, California, U.S.A.
“I love IXL, like really love it. I just learned point-slope form for linear graphs. I was having trouble so I went on IXL, mastered the skill, and now I am great at it. I also like doing other skills just for the awards. My math grade and overall math skills improved with IXL.”
Kevin L., 7th grade student, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.
“I love IXL Analytics, including the Real-Time Center and the performance rankings by skills mastered (I use this for contests). I assign certain skills, but lots of my students do IXL just for fun! The more they practice the more confident they become in my class. This is my third year using IXL and it keeps getting better! I showed the real-time screen on the board and my students ended up competing against each other. It was a great teacher momentthe whole class was totally involved and learning!”
Kimberly Toth, 8th grade and Algebra 1 teacher, Palmer, Texas, U.S.A.
“I love IXL. It has helped me a lot and my teachers have told me that I have improved greatly.”

Lynetta Mason, homeschooling parent, Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A.
“I first did IXL for school because it was homework, but then I was on it one day and my little sister asked what I was doing and I told her I was doing IXL. She said, 'I want to try.' I got her on a kindergarten skill and it was too easy so I told her to try 1st grade. Now she comes up to me and asks if she can do it. She also works towards prizes and it is been amazing how good she is getting!”
Maddie B., 5th grade student, Knoxville, Tennessee, U.S.A.
“My favorite feature is the way IXL rewards children and gives feedback for both right and wrong answers. The feedback doesn't make the children feel bad or get frustrated when they get it wrong, and when they get it right gives a great sense of accomplishment. One of my children is extremely advanced in math and IXL has allowed him to move ahead and challenge himself, while still keeping the current classroom study in his mind. My other child has a little trouble with math and IXL helps him to stay focused and wanting to try!”
Melissa Ivy Bush, parent of two 2nd graders, Lisle, Illinois, U.S.A.
“Using IXL, my grades have gone from below average to above average. I especially love the awards because they provide motivation. Doing more problems solves the mystery of what's under each square of the gameboard.”
Melissa T., 8th grade student, Eckert, Colorado, U.S.A.
“We have had stellar results with IXL. It has been life changing. It is wonderful to see how our students stack up against state standards and IXL has given us a clear picture of where the material our boys are learning in school fits into our state's standards. Because of our reports going to our school administrator, our school is considering using IXL.”
Michelle Roccio-Janssen, parent of 5, Winside, Nebraska, U.S.A.

Mindy Pomerinke, parent of a 9th grader, Goldendale, Washington, U.S.A.
“Im a 7th grade student and this is my favorite educational website.

I think my grades have improved since I started IXL.”
Owen O., 7th grade student, Camden, Ohio, U.S.A.

Safet S., 8th grade student, Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.
“I am a student who works on IXL at home and I think IXL is awesome! I am in 4th grade and IXL has helped me a lot in my schoolwork. IXL is awesome because it helps me a lot and is a lot of fun at the same time.”
Shruti, student, Parma Heights, Ohio, U.S.A.
“My favorite IXL features are how when you get an answer wrong, it doesn't just leave you wondering what was the real answer? or I wonder what I did wrong? It shows you step-by-step how to fix the mistake. I personally think that's great! I just wanted to say how much IXL has changed my performance in mathematics. Going from C+'s to straight A+'s in two or three months, just wow!”
Sophia H., student, Delaware, U.S.A.
“IXL has improved my childrens performance. It is very user friendly. I have one child who struggles a bit, so sometimes we need to go way back to the start of a topic, which may require going back to the previous grade. I can easily switch between the grades to find topics and view the practice skills my child needs to work on.”
Susy Schimke, homeschooling parent, U.S.A.
“I am a student in 5th grade and have been using IXL since 3rd grade. I like that math and language arts are neatly organized and help me easily practice a topic. I also like when IXL explains to me why I get a problem wrong.”
