As an administrator, how do I set up teacher accounts?

To get your teachers and their classrooms started on IXL, you’ll start by setting up teacher accounts on your site license.

Create new teacher accounts

The easiest way to create accounts for your teachers is by processing a roster upload. To start, sign in to your administrator account, navigate to the “Account Management” area and select “Upload Roster” from the “Roster” drop-down menu. Follow this quick-start guide for detailed instructions. 

If you only have a small group of teachers to add, you can opt to add them individually by navigating to the “Teachers” page from the “Roster” drop-down menu. Select “Add new teacher” on the right side of the page and enter each teacher’s information. 

Once added, the teachers will receive an email with their account information and instructions on how to get started on IXL.

Invite teachers with existing trial or classroom accounts

If any of your teachers are already using IXL, invite them to join your site license so that their students’ existing work on IXL can be transferred to the school license. These teachers will be able to activate their teacher account and continue using IXL with little disruption. 

To invite teachers already using IXL to join your license:

  1. Sign in to your administrator account.
  2. Click on Account Management.
  3. Hover over the “Roster” tab and select Teachers.
  4. Select Invite teachers already using IXL on the right side of the page.
  5. Enter the email address(es) of the teacher(s) who you want to invite.
  6. (Optional) Include a custom message and further instructions.
  7. Click Send.

Invited teachers will receive instructions by email to join your license and transfer their students’ data.
