“IXL is great and amazing! When I go to school I get the answers right away. But not fractions because I'm not there yet.”
Sophia, grade 2 student, Toronto, Ontario
“I like how we are not limited to just our grade level, but can choose to start at JK or at the high school level, depending on what we want to do. As a substitute, I see math at all levels and sometimes I'm not sure why the students are doing a math problem a certain way, then I discover it on here and go, "Ooh! That's why!" It's a good way for me to keep up with the math curriculum and to help keep my mind fresh! I have heard lots of positive feedback from others and see it often used at schools. I like IXL a lot and plan to use it in my own classroom someday.”
Lisa-Marie Tew, teacher, Red Deer, Alberta
“My favorite features include the explanations, the reports, and how it matches our provincially administered and guided curricular objectives. I have really enjoyed my IXL experience and the variety of learning options it presents within my classrooms.”

Jim Buffington, parent, Plano, Texas, U.S.A.
“My students love it! It really challenges them to master the concepts. I told one of my students to change to another topic so she could practice for the upcoming tests, and she said, 'No, wait! I want to get to 100% first!' I have never seen her more motivated to succeed!”
JaLene Rosengren, 4th and 5th grade teacher, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, 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.

Darlene Shaw, special education teacher, Gilbert, Arizona, U.S.A.

Sandy Tignor, 8th grade math teacher, Eureka, California, U.S.A.

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.
“My children are loving it and I have also received great comments from parents. In class, they are begging to get on your site!!!”
Jennifer Smith, 3rd grade teacher, Olive Branch, Mississippi, U.S.A.

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.

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 what's happening.”
Benjamin, year 8 student, Ourimbah, New South Wales, Australia

Dianne Williams, year 6/7 teacher, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
“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
“This is our first week of IXL. The kids were pleading with me to go onto IXL half an hour before school started this morning. Other teachers that walked into the room were astounded to see our 16 notebook computers all being used by excited kids doing MATHS!!”

Pamela Awbrey, teacher, Edinburg, Texas, U.S.A.
“My son has come in 2nd in his school because of practicing maths in IXL.”
Yasmin, parent, Karachi, Pakistan

Althea Carter, teacher, Lithonia, Georgia, U.S.A.
“I currently teach first grade in an inner city school and am a former technology coordinator. Our current technology coordinator sent me your site, and I loved it.

Your site would cost a lot less.”
Lori Sanders, 1st grade teacher, Allentown, Pennsylvania, 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.

Jenny Shotts, teacher, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.
“I can tell that you have put in a huge amount of time into this website. I know that there are many math websites out there. You have gone above and beyond the call of duty in providing an affordable math site that addresses core and state standards. Parents love it, too! Good job.”
John Barenberg, 3rd grade teacher, Marsing, Idaho, U.S.A.
“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, United Kingdom

Peter W., parent, Lymington, Hampshire, United Kingdom
“Considering the amount of content we have to cover in a year, we have very little time to get in adequate practice before moving on. IXL has solved that problem. It has also allowed us a VERY easy way to go back and review skills throughout the year we have already covered. For our lower achieving students, sending them back one or two levels has helped improve weaknesses and build confidence.”
Sandye Kabalen, 6th grade math teacher, Richmond, Kentucky, U.S.A.
“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.

“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

Kerry Broadhurst, 4th grade teacher, Albany, Oregon, U.S.A.
“I am amazed at the comments from parents concerning how well their children are responding to the website. Mind you these are three year old children. The mom of the youngest three-year-old stated that the first thing her child wants to do after being at preschool for 7 hours is to come home and do her math on the computer. The mother was elated. I am so thankful to have found this site.”
Latrece Johnson, preschool teacher, Mobile, Alabama, U.S.A.

Hannah, 6th grade student, Hutchinson, Kansas, U.S.A.
“I am a teacher with various grades in one classroom (3-5). What I love about your website is that it is kid friendly and has reports for the teacher to closely monitor what the students actually does during his/her time on the computer. It allows practice on numerous skills which is an advantage for upcoming state assessment.”
Shirley S. Brill, teacher, Jacksonville, Florida, U.S.A.
“This site is a wonderful resource and has everything to supplement my first grade math curriculum.”
Cindy O'Shaughnessy, 1st grade teacher, Cedar Park, Texas, U.S.A.

Jenna Wilk, 5th and 6th grade teacher, Rogers City, Michigan, U.S.A.
“Every thing about ixl is so perfect!”
Saskkia W., grade 5 student, St. Catherine, Jamaica
“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.

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!”

The progress reports are extremely helpful with my record keeping and assessments.”
Janet Robinson, teacher, Cerro Gordo, North Carolina, U.S.A.
“Now, instead of giving homework, I assign IXL practice for 15-20 minutes a night. Students get points for time spent practicing, how many medals attained, and improvement in scores. My unmotivated students beg to use the computers. I set a goal for an hour a week, but all surpass it.”
Nikki Pivovar, high school special education teacher, Ansonia, 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.

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.

Sidra M., parent, Hayes, United Kingdom
“With IXL, my son's confidence has improved since he has a lot of practice. He now seems to be conceptualizing more than guessing.”
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.”

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 feel like before, in elementary school, I hated math, and I mean HATE! IXL has made me enjoy math. I wake up in the morning thinking “I wonder what skill we are doing today?” IXL has made me more confident in math. Thank You.”
Samantha, student, Salem, Oregon, U.S.A.
“At the beginning of fourth grade I was scared when we had multiplication tests. At first I wasn't passing. So one day my teacher said we would be starting IXL for homework every night. I went on that night and LOVED it!!! The next Tuesday we had a multiplication test and I PASSED my threes! I went on every night for the rest of the month to see if it worked. It did! Now it's almost the end of fourth grade, and two months ago I finished all my multiplication and DIVISION! Thank you so much IXL!!”
Paloma G., student, Huntington Beach, California, 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.”

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.
“I am a teacher of a class of Year 7 and 8, and they LOVE IXL. They will choose to do it rather than have free time in the room, and are forever trying to beat each other's scores. They are going ahead in leaps and bounds and gaining wonderful confidence as they go.”
Annette M., teacher, Drouin, Victoria, Australia
“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.
“Me and my class love this web site, because it helps us learn. Thanks for making this. IT ROCKS!!”
Kylie, student, Kansas City, Missouri, 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.
“This is the second year my daughter's been using IXL. Her confidence and her skills have improved tremendously. If there's a problem and she doesn't understand she can continue practicing until she gets it.”
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.”
Margaret N., grandparent and homeschooler, Colona, Illinois, U.S.A.
“Since my daughter started using IXL, she has been able to better understand the concepts taught in school. She has also become more patient and more careful while working out her problems.”
Priya, parent, Bangalore, India
“Your site is very nice. My daughter wakes up with IXL in the morning and comes back from school to master more skills. As she can hear the problems, she is also picking up English, in addition to the math skills.”
Uma Maheswari Rajagopalan, parent, Tokorozawa, Japan
“I love that I can have kids in many different levels at the same time. I also love the ease of the reports. The most important thing is that as a teacher, I can log in and actually see what the kids are working on and even work them as a child on the board for the kids to see.”
Elena Lee, teacher, Huntsville, Alabama, U.S.A.
“A significant number of our 400+ children use it weekly for at least 30 minutes. Quite a few do 2 or 3 hours a week. Teachers report that those regularly using the product are making better progress than expected in their assessments, and they can then go onto more challenging concepts.”
Peter Hillier, headteacher, Nottingham, UK
“So far IXL met all the learning needs I needed for my class. I like how the skills are grouped because this gives the kids an intense practice on the benchmarks. I also like the feedback IXL sends to me as a teacher showing how much time kids spend on IXL, what they did and what were their challenging areas. My students' grades have been affected very positively.”
Makuena, teacher, Maseru, Lesotho
“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
“I have purchased many many apps, but I love IXL so much that the IXL app is really the only one I would like on my iPad!!”
Julie Johnson, first grade teacher, Hendersonville, Tennessee, U.S.A.
“I check daily for good apps for our iPads and iPods and came across your's today. I've used IXL before, but don't have membership. I signed in as a guest and used your coordinate grid questions with my kids (it's this week's 5th grade math unit). This is so easy to use, well done! I've seen a lot of apps in my various roles, but this is very useful and collect real-time data.”
Sarah Emerling, special education and technology coach, Aiken, South Carolina, U.S.A.
“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.”

Liz Saul, 2nd grade teacher, Dublin, California, U.S.A.
“It has made my grades better in a lot of ways. I enjoy math now!”
Caleb J., student, DeKalb, Illinois, U.S.A.
“I really like that the lessons start off easy and progressively get harder and it remediates if a student misses a question. My students get so much more practice and I can really see if they are getting a concept. I love IXL.”
Deanna Kilburn, resource math teacher, U.S.A.
“My class has already done 30,000 problems!! All of us LOVE IXL. When I was in 3rd grade I was in the top of my class for the division facts and it helped me so much I got straight A's that whole year.”
Kirsten A., 5th grade student, Dumfries, Virginia, U.S.A.
“My first graders loved IXL. They would always make excuses to do it, like, "Can I do IXL instead of silent read? It will help my grades!" They stood inside for recess and became quite advanced, some even teaching themselves multiplication! The awards meant so much to them, as I printed certificates on IXL to show their parents.”
Adelina Shurkai-Molnese, 5th grade teacher, 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.
“Love the infinite math problems. Students need infinite practice in order to master math concepts. Love the reports feature so that students can quickly show me what they've accomplished. I love knowing my students' strengths and weaknesses. Overall, great program!”
Alix Botts, tutor, Overland Park, Kansas, U.S.A.
“I am an advanced 5th grade student; because of IXL I have been in advanced math for 4 years.”
Allison H., 5th grade student, Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.
“I think IXL is a great way for students, or really anyone, to learn! I love how the grades are split into categories and each grade goes over certain topics! I was hoping IXL could help me with triangles, and they did! It has affected my grade so much! I was getting better and better due to practice on this site, and it really improved my math grade!”
Alyssa K., 7th grade student, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
“I love everything about IXL: being able to measure individual student progress remotely, giving students early opportunities for success paired with later incentives to challenge themselves, having easy-to-search skills organized by level and topic, providing feedback to help students with incorrect answers, everything! My students' grades have vastly improved with the ability to practice skills, get immediate feedback, and be evaluated on the accuracy of their answers in real time.”
Amanda Barr, high school Math I teacher, New Bern, North Carolina, U.S.A.
“My favorite feature of IXL is that it gives immediate feedback to students and walks them through how to solve the problem. My students are more motivated to do math problems, and I love when I hear "Yes!" while they are working. Their scores on our math assessments have improved, and I credit much of that to IXL.”
Andrea Benge, 5th grade teacher, Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.
“I like this website because this is good for my daughters. They are learning many skills that help at school. My daughter Elenia needs this website because she needs help with English language arts. My grandma was a teacher and believes that you include all skills a child needs for success in the school!”
Andrea Garcia, parent, Deltona, Florida, U.S.A.
“My ELL students grew an average of 425% OVER what they were expected (predicted) to grow by NWEA in one year in only one semester!”
Angelia Rosende, teacher and math coach, Basalt, Colorado, U.S.A.
“I have varying levels of students in my classroom and some need a lot more practice than others and this allows for that. I also reward them for getting 100's and encourage doing the 'lower level' items because many of my students have gaps. It has been very beneficial. ”
Annora Quenzer, 8th grade special education teacher, Raymore, Missouri, U.S.A.
“I'm 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.”

Atiksh C., student, Bartlett, Illinois, U.S.A.
“I was hoping to get a better understanding of certain math problems that I do not understand well, and this website helped tremendously with just that. This is a very cool site and I'm glad my teacher showed it to me.”
Audry C., high school senior, Steubenville, Ohio, U.S.A.
“I teach my granddaughter at home because of seizures that have caused her to lose part of what she has learned. She has to go back and relearn her 4th grade math. IXL has been extremely helpful. IXL has greatly encouraged her by allowing her to learn without feeling bad about herself.”
Barbara Martinez, grandparent, Barstow, California, U.S.A.
“Students who consistently use IXL show significant learning gains in problem solving.”
Bernice Stephens-Alleyne, retired math teacher, part-time in-school tutor, Homestead, Florida, 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.
“I love IXL because it really gets my grades up in high school. I used to get all F's, but now I have all B's and one C.”
Brendon, high school student, Jeffersonville, Indiana, U.S.A.
“The dynamic practice environment is helping my students' understanding to become more solid than a textbook alone could have achieved. This platform is also able to meet each student where they are, at their level of mastery, and help them excel.”
Bridget Wilson, Algebra I teacher, Warrenton, Virginia, 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.
“I like that IXL breaks skills down into baby steps and each skill builds on the last within a category. It helps students learn the skill. I believe IXL is helping them move forward on their skills. IXL also provides further lessons, when we finish a unit, for those who didn't master the skill.”
Christi, 4th grade teacher, Strong, Maine, 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!”
Cindy Nichols, educator and parent, Olive Branch, Mississippi, U.S.A.
“My pre-algebra class uses IXL when we have 10 minutes at the end of class, as review for tests, in AIS class, and after school. They love trying to beat each other's scores, and earning ribbons before each other. Students who have a history of being very academically unsuccessful have done well on the last couple of quizzes because of the repeated practice on IXL. They want to stay on a topic because they have mastered it, without really realizing just how much extra practice they are doing to solidify their understanding into long-term memory. IXL has been very helpful with classroom management as well--as they are all working they tell each other to leave them alone and to not distract them because they do not want to make a mistake.”
Connie Rasmussen, high school algebra teacher, Munnsville, New York, U.S.A.
“I like how when you get a question right it says good things, and that's what makes me keep going, even if sometimes I get the wrong answer. IXL helped me a lot in math and my grades are just excellent.”
Corey W., 7th grade student, Pace, Florida, U.S.A.
“I love a lot of IXL's features. It is a very exciting platform that motivates students and challenges them to understand the material. Students in my school have had their grades improve due to the extra practice they receive through IXL.”
Dan Van der Vieren, 6th-8th grade teacher, Weldona, Colorado, U.S.A.
“I love that there is an endless supply of problems that students can work through and that they are leveled. I like how my students work towards a goal and the problems progressively get more challenging, but will drop them down if they are having trouble. I feel that it has significantly helped them prepare for assessments and review skills.”
Danni Holyst, high school math interventionist and honors teacher, New Britain, Connecticut, U.S.A.
“I am an alternative education teacher in a math lab setting that allows me to provide plenty of one-on-one instruction. IXL is ideal for my teaching/learning environment. My students' skills most often span two levels and IXL allows for learning at whatever level is appropriate at the time. It's wonderful!”
Debbi E. Walcker, alternative education math lab teacher, Woodinville, Washington, U.S.A.
“I like the reports, how the students can easily find where they left off, and that if they make a mistake they are shown how to do it and the correct answer.”
Denise Pierro, 1st grade teacher, Kirtland, New Mexico, U.S.A.
“Being in high school is quite difficult but your site has helped me to improve. My grade went up in middle school and it's still going up in high school by 15%. ”
Dennis K., 9th grade student, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
“ I love how organized the skills are and how the skill continues until you master it. It can be frustrating at times, especially when you make a simple mistake, but it makes you pay more attention to those little mistakes. 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. The website is easy to operate and the advances are visible. My son has learned a lot and practicing online has helped him sharpen both math and computer skills. 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 like that the questions get more difficult at a SmartScore of 90. The kids really have to understand the material to complete each topic. I love using your website. ”
Elizabeth Allen, homeschooling parent, Hickory, North Carolina, U.S.A.
“I need to improve, but IXL is helping! I was a D+ and now I'm a C+, and I'm sure IXL helped a lot in math! I cannot wait to get an A!”
Ellie W., student, U.S.A.
“IXL is awesome. It has really helped me with math. I love it!”
Emily A., student, Hohenwald, Tennessee, U.S.A.
“I love how well lessons stay in my head after I have mastered them; I perfectly remember lessons I had completed in the very beginning of 7th grade! I like the game board feature as well because it is a calm push to continue studying.”
Erazmas V., 8th grade student, New York, New York, U.S.A.
“Our students improve their grades every time they use IXL.”
Fernanda Ramos Kuzuhara, math, physics, and chemistry tutor, Des Plaines, Illinois, U.S.A.
“The students enjoy choosing their own skills to practice with, and I like to use it with the whole class when we need to practice particular skills. They like to practice on IXL, so that means they will see more success!”
Ginger Hunt, 1st and 2nd grade teacher, Fullerton, California, U.S.A.
“I think IXL has just what I need. My favorite features are the prizes (of course), being able to see how I am progressing and my weaknesses, and seeing what skills I have mastered.”
Hannah T., 6th grade student, Round Rock, Texas, U.S.A.
“IXL has become my favorite website to learn math and English. Thank you for this website!”
Howon Kim, 9th grade student, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
“I find IXL really fun and it is a good site to use. I am in 5th grade and I use this site a lot. One day my teacher showed IXL to my class and I have been using it ever since.”
Isabelle B., 5th grade student, Broadway, Virginia, U.S.A.
“My students are working harder than they have worked all year. My students are logging in before and after school to complete more problems. They are also begging their other teachers to allow them to go to computer rooms to work on IXL whenever those classes have down time. I have never seen them beg to work on math before!”
Jacqueline Lewis, 9th grade Algebra 1 teacher, Enterprise, Mississippi, U.S.A.
“My teacher assigned us IXL so I was kind of hoping it would help me in math. I strongly believe that IXL has helped me with my knowledge for this year and years to come.”
Jade S., 7th grade student, Douglas, Georgia, U.S.A.
“I love this learning program, it helps my son out a great deal and I even use it to refresh my knowledge. ”
James A. Alton, parent, West Monroe, Louisiana, U.S.A.
“Wow, I am so impressed by how much IXL has taught me. 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.
“I love the data and all the reports. I just began using the program and I'm so excited to see the data/progress my students will make. This program is like no other. It's amazing!”
Jennifer Bender, 1st grade teacher, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
“My favorite feature is how if I get a problem wrong, IXL shows me how to properly do it. My grades are getting better and increasing my hopes of advancing without ever failing. IXL is a great way to practice your math and it actually feel like it's a game! ”
Jordan B., 3rd grade student, Keizer, Oregon, U.S.A.
“I really wanted to learn about stuff that might help for gifted and talented courses and help me review the previous year's coursework. I have gotten straight A's every single time I used this program. I love this program; it has helped many people in my family.”
Joselyn, 8th grade student, Frisco, Texas, U.S.A.
“I love the immediate feedback my students get with the explanation of how to fix the error they made.”
Joy Alston, 7th grade math teacher and parent, Mount Holly, North Carolina, 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. What I love about the IXL in the lower grades is that there's a speaker, so the questions are read to the student. 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 have seen huge growth in all of my students. What is great is that all of my students are growing. My students who started testing at a 2nd grade level are now doing 4th grade skills, and my students who were testing at an 8th grade level are now doing algebra-level skills. We use IXL for 30 minutes every day and I can trust that every student is growing.”
Katrina Musco, 6th grade teacher, San Jose, 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. It helps kids want to earn more and show their friends and compete against each other. It also helps kids feel good because they earned something by doing well. ”
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.
“This has been tremendously beneficial for my students, and parents love it. ”
Kim Garvin, 4th grade math teacher, Vidalia, Georgia, 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 moment--the whole class was totally involved and learning!”
Kimberly Toth, 8th grade and Algebra 1 teacher, Palmer, Texas, U.S.A.
“How could I even begin to list my favorite features; not having to grade assignments, instant student feedback, review of graded results, remediation using problems from previous grades if necessary, correlation to standards, and as much repetition as the student needs to "get" the concept. Gaps are being filled. IXL puts learning completely in the hands of the student.”
Kris Chapin, high school math teacher, Anderson, Indiana, U.S.A.
“I love how my students can get automatic feedback, can work on other grade level material, and can see many different types of questions instead of doing worksheets.”
Kristan LeFave, 5th grade special education teacher, Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A.
“I love IXL. It has helped me a lot and my teachers have told me that I have improved greatly.”
Kyra, student, Hermosa, South Dakota, U.S.A.
“I love your product, students love your product, and parents love your product. I implemented IXL for enrichment, remediation, and practice as a complement to traditional "chalk and talk" instruction. Cumulatively, 36 students have completed an additional 23,000 math problems in addition to their bookwork and worksheets. Students are more engaged and practicing more than they ever have.”
Lance Ashley Davis, teacher, Tallahassee, Florida, U.S.A.
“I am a 9th grade math teacher. IXL has been so helpful to my students the past two years! At the end of every year, I give a survey to my students and they consistently say IXL helped them succeed. I'm definitely an advocate for IXL! It has definitely boosted performance and understanding. My students do not always like practicing math, as they are 15 years old, but they can all say that IXL has boosted their performance, which they appreciate in the end. ”
Laney Gautreau, 9th grade teacher, St. Amant, Louisiana, U.S.A.
“My students have stayed focused! IXL has been wonderful for the autistic students. This is the program I prefer; the other programs have too much 'bling' and don't track against state standards. This is great for IEPs.”
Linda Withem, pre-K–4th grade special education teacher, Hooks, Texas, U.S.A.
“My students need repeated repetition for mastery and IXL provides them with that repetition in a way that is fun. I definitely see a boost in confidence and an improvement in students' scores and fluency within problem solving.”
Lisa Clark, 4th grade teacher, Bronx, New York, U.S.A.
“I homeschool my girls. I found IXL and I absolutely love it. It goes hand-in-hand with our curriculum and the fact that it grades their work instantly is awesome, as it makes my job grading easier. It is so worth the cost. Thank you for creating this program.”
Lori Collins, parent, Luttrell, Tennessee, U.S.A.
“I love that IXL includes every aspect of math from counting money to telling time. I like the subcategories, as it allows my children to learn a topic thoroughly.”
Lorraine Zamudio, parent of 3, North Carolina, U.S.A.
“IXL is an awesome aid. We mostly use it for when I am busy working one-on-one with a child so the other children can work on IXL.”
Lou Ellen Doty, parent, West Chester, Ohio, U.S.A.
“IXL helped my kids excel in math, language arts, and in working independently. The medal/prize reward system reinforces and motivates achievement, the reports give parents an overview of the students' progress and shows areas in need of improvement, and notifications let parents know when the child has obtained a new skill and deserves recognition for the accomplishment.”
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.
“I am a special education teacher at two elementary schools. I work with students who are behind grade level or struggle with foundational skills. I like the differences in approaches to math IXL offers because it meets a lot of different learning styles.”
Maurice Falls, special education teacher, Charlotte, North Carolina, 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.
“I think that it's great that there are step-by-step solutions for every problem. I also really appreciate the algorithm for question generation. IXL is a wonderful way to differentiate. The timer is great as it is a very concrete way to show a student that they need to slow down to prevent careless errors. When I point out that they answered 30 items in 2 minutes (a rate of 1 every 4 seconds), it's not really hard to get them to see that's probably the reason why they made mistakes.”
Michael Moffre, 7th grade math teacher, Latham, New York, 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.
“I am a 6th grader; I was struggling in English and my reading grades climbed from 60 to 100 in a week.”
Mike, 6th grade student, New York City, New York, U.S.A.

Mindy Pomerinke, parent of a 9th grader, Goldendale, Washington, U.S.A.
“I am a high school special education teacher and I brought IXL to our high performing district. Most of my students have significant learning needs and IXL's material is wonderful. Students enjoy prizes and are motivated to meet their goals. I assign one hour of practice a week and many students practice much more.”
Nikki Pivovar, high school special education teacher, New Canaan, Connecticut, U.S.A.
“I'm a 7th grade student and this is my favorite educational website. IXL keeps me organized (no mess or papers with the possibility of getting lost), it easily tells me how well I do, and it helps me improve by showing me what I did wrong if I make a mistake. I think my grades have improved since I started IXL.”
Owen O., 7th grade student, Camden, Ohio, U.S.A.
“I love all your features! I've been on IXL practically my whole life and you guys are the reason I am where I am. IXL helped me become an above average fifth grader! Thanks so much!”
Paige, 5th grade student, Auburn, Washington, U.S.A.
“My students are motivated to complete more and more problems to get to that SmartScore of a 100, and they are more focused on their work!”
Peter Mesh, 5th grade teacher, Wynantskill, New York, U.S.A.

Rajveersing R., 5th grade student, Dublin, California, U.S.A.
“One of my favorite IXL features is the amount of effort IXL puts into making sure problems do not repeat. Another is showing how and why we got a problem wrong. IXL has helped me majorly in school and has taught me numerous problem solving skills in math.”
Rithvik C., 8th grade student, North Brunswick, New Jersey, U.S.A.
“The ribbon and medal reward system is very effective in providing my students with the motivation to work through skills. Most students really enjoy showing me what they've earned. That is especially true for students who struggle with algebra. IXL is also very user friendly. I rarely have students come to me for help with the interface.”
Robert Lopez, high school algebra teacher, Whittier, California, U.S.A.
“I love using IXL as a resource in my classroom and more importantly, my students love it! I have used it for about five to six years. The kids love keeping track of the skills they've mastered and the awards they've earned. The students love the different types of questions and it prepares them for state assessments. My students are extremely engaged in math practice through this program. They are excited to practice math at school and at home with this site and with this increased engagement comes more learning.”
Ryan Walker, 2nd and 3rd grade math teacher, Max Meadows, Virginia, U.S.A.

Safet S., 8th grade student, Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A.
“IXL is the most effective tool I have ever used in education. There is no better way to prepare my students for the all of the high stakes tests that are part of the educational landscape. I have incorporated IXL into my daily math lessons. IXL is a great differentiation and reinforcement tool. I would recommend this tool to any educator looking for an effective way to boost their test scores and accelerate student achievement!”
Scott Mayes, 2nd grade teacher, Roscommon, Michigan, 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.
“The read aloud voice is great for young learners to practice math independently.”
Sue Stanley, kindergarten teacher, Yucaipa, California, U.S.A.
“IXL has improved my children's 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.”
