IXL Overview

IXL is a supplemental program we are using with a small number of students to get them the additional support they need in the areas of reading, language, and math. This newsletter is designed to show you some videos on how to best use the program to truly see the positive effects it can have with student progress.

Usernames and Password

When students are added to IXL, they are assigned a username. The password is always 123 unless it is changed after. Username can be found once you log in and search for the student. Below are files you are welcome to use to assist in starting up with your students. Also a parent letter to send home.

Step 1- Add Students to your rosters

Step 2- Continuous Diagnostic Assessment.

The first time students should spend roughly 40-60 minute in the assessment. After that, students should come back to it once a week for roughly 10-15 minutes.
