What is the Continuous Diagnostic?

IXL’s Continuous Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment tool that provides an accurate, up-to-the-minute portrait of each and every student. By answering questions in the Continuous Diagnostic, students can pinpoint their current levels of knowledge in math and language arts (overall and in specific strands), plus their reading level.

As the Continuous Diagnostic gathers insights, students receive personalized recommendations that help them figure out what actions to take for growth. This engaging Diagnostic empowers students to have a more active role in their ongoing learning journey, and teachers can also use this truly up-to-date snapshot of their students’ understanding to challenge them at just the right level.
