Engaging and Adaptive Math Practice

IXL is a math practice tool for educators and families that adapts to a student’s individual level of proficiency and includes achievement awards and progress monitoring data so you can view reports in ways that will work for all (teachers, parents, intervention coaches, etc).

I just signed up for a 30 day free trial, and I’m excited to see how exactly to make this work with some sixth grade students that I co-teach in math.  I’ve explored the site; however, I haven’t yet used it (as I just found out about it this evening). So far, I love the way the site looks, the data it provided, and the leveled skills it covers. I’ve been on the hunt for a solid math support; I think I found my answer.  
Beneficial Features I Found:

  • Covers grades K – 8 (with more coming soon)
  • Over hundreds of skills are covered at each level – easily identified by labeled categories
  • Aligned with each state’s standards for quick reference of a specific strand
  • Aligned with the Common Core Standards
  • Internationally recognized
  • Reports can be viewed to determine progress towards state’s goals, track progress monitoring, set student’s goals, or to show off student’s earned rewards
  • Membership is affordable and available for teachers or parents
  • Teachers can enter individual student names to track student progress and how long they are practicing from home or school

I will post comments to this thread as I explore more of this site with my free trial.  If you’ve tried this program, I’d love to hear your feedback.
