“Thanks to IXL, our students' performance has increased dramatically. Because they practice the skills daily, and because the site provides feedback, students are able to correct their mistakes and master the concepts easily.”
Waleska Batista, teacher, Cherry Hill, New Jersey, U.S.A.
“My favourite feature of IXL is that if you get a question wrong IXL will tell you how to solve it and what you did wrong. Another thing I really enjoy is that IXL provides awards and progress reports showing how you do over time. I think these two things are very effective because they make the student feel like they are actually studying and not wasting time.”
Student, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
“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.”
Parent of a 4th grader, California, U.S.A.
“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.”
Parent, Coolah, NSW, Australia
“My students are improving by the day, and some even stay in for recess to work on IXL!”

We’ve created a smoother navigation experience so exploring skills is now easier—and more fun—than ever before.
THE WORST DO NOT GET WASTE OF MONEY
I am a 7th grader, and this is the WORST app I have ever had. Number one. It has no instructions on what you're doing, unless you get an answer wrong.
Number two. The math and English have levels that are way ahead on your grade. I am a 7th grader that does 12th grade Language Arts, and its hard for people in my class, me and even my teachers.
Number three. Waste of money. If you want to do multiple subjects, you have to pay extra, even when you don't use the app.
Number four. The time. The time we spend on one problem is unbelievable. I spent one hour on one level. And on my free time I do math and English on grades that aren't in my "need to do". And it can still be complicated at times.
If anyone likes this app, doesn't even know what they're talking about. DO NOT GET! And if a person that runs the app or at least works for the team, MAKE AN UPDATE!
Point deduction system needs to be removed
I completely agree with the majority of the other reviews, I homeschool and nothing has frustrated my children more then the amount of points that gets taken away when they get an answer wrong. I use to tell them to do each specific subject until they got, say a 95. It could take literally hours to reach that with the amount of points taken away for a few wrong answers, now I just tell them to do a subject for 30 minuets and done. Please IXL consider changing this, simply marking them wrong and having them redo the question later in the test would make a lot more sense. Kids shouldn’t feel so stressed like this while learning. Also, I know you now offer Spanish, but is there not an update for it on the app?.
Okay. But a little adjustment
IXL helps me practice my math (which I'm kinda bad at). Its a good educational app. The only problem I have is once you get a question wrong, you have to go like 10 points back. 1 question is 1-4 points. And 10 points is a lot. I would rather not have any points taken away, or at least only a few points taken off. Plus, because of points taken away makes kids feel less confident and feel like they can't do it. It's also SUPER STRESSFUL. Once you get a question wrong when you are 1 point away from finishing it, you are back to square one. Other than those issues, IXL is really helpful.
