What is the Real-Time Diagnostic?

IXL’s Real-Time 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 Real-Time 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 Real-Time 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 up-to-date snapshot of their students’ understanding to challenge them at just the right level.
