Pamela Awbrey, teacher, Edinburg, Texas, U.S.A.
“My favourite feature of IXL is that if you get a question wrong IXL will tell you how to solve it and what you did wrong. Another thing I really enjoy is that IXL provides awards and progress reports showing how you do over time...they make the student feel like they are actually studying and not wasting time.”
Student, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

8th grade student, Redmond, Washington, U.S.A.
“I am a retired teacher who is tutoring a young boy with special needs, and your program is going to be really good for him. I can teach him a new concept using manipulatives and assign one of your lessons to reinforce it. Best of all, his mother and I can both track his progress. This is the right program for the times. You'll do a lot of good and many children will benefit. I wish you great success.”

I found IXL while working on a Master's degree in Technology. I experimented with the website on my own and then did a free trial for my students in my classroom. Needless to say I ended up purchasing a membership because the kids were crazy about IXL. I think this website should be used in every school. Thank you for producing such a great resource for teachers and kids!”
3rd grade teacher, New Mexico, U.S.A.

Kerry Broadhurst, 4th grade teacher, Albany, Oregon, U.S.A.
“First of all, I love your website. It is amazing to see how much more improvement my students are able to make when they can see if their answers are right or wrong instantly instead of waiting for me to check their work and getting it back to them the next day. Not to mention the countless hours of grading that I no longer have to do, and many thousands of paper copies that are no longer needed... all wonderful!! (IXL actually SAVES our district money as our math-related copy costs have decreased by more than what your site costs per year.) I am convinced that your site is the future of math education.”
3rd grade teacher, Michigan, 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.
“As an instructor, I find the teacher tools very helpful, as it makes it easier for me to see how each student is doing and I can compare students to one another on a variety of levels. It makes it quick and simple to gauge how the program is working, which students need more help, etc. As far as the student side, I love that after wrong answers, the problems are explained and the correct answer is given. It helps my students learn from their mistakes.”
Volunteer tutor working with low-income children, Tampa, Florida, U.S.A.

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.

“Every thing about ixl is so perfect!”
Grade 5 student, St. Catherine, Jamaica
“You're going to love this - I asked the kids what they thought of IXL now that they have been working on it for a few weeks. They all love it - every single student, and I have multi-grade classes. One lad said, "It's so cool that we get to play IXL so much 'cause it isn't school." It is motivating the students and they are learning far better than if they just stuck to the textbooks. They are also able to cover more skills this way - more efficient way of delivering ideas.”
Teacher, Quebec, Canada

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.”
High school special education teacher, Ansonia, Connecticut, U.S.A.
“I am a soon to be sixth grader in a few months. I love IXL because it is helping me a lot. I did not know my multiplication as good as i was supposed to. I knew my 1's, 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 10's, 11's, and 12's a bit. But not really. So IXL really helped me, not only with multiplication but to review things from previous grade to help me for the future coming ahead. Thanks a lot for all of this.”
Student, Detroit, Michigan, 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.”
4th grade student, Temecula, California, U.S.A.
“I have used IXL this summer for summer math. I am working on math in the grade I am going into, 7th grade, and I think it has already helped me a lot with things I would have struggled with during the school year.”
Student, Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.
“My favorite feature is definitely the game board. Though I am an older kid I find it very fun and I look forward to getting all the stars and “mastering” the skills. I often go back to the 8th grade skills to go through things I hadn't fully learned, and I am positive I get them now.”
9th grade student, Hollywood, Florida, U.S.A.
“I am a student and I used to be weak at maths but after using IXL I am now getting good in maths and starting liking it too. Thanks IXL!”

Teacher, Lake Elmo, Minnesota, U.S.A.
“I work with students from three schools and six grades. Obviously I can't be everywhere at once. I LOVE how I can teach a strand and then have the kids practice on-line with a report being e-mailed to me.”
Teacher of accelerated students, Waynesboro, Virginia, U.S.A.
“I love this site! As a Pre-K teacher, I am always looking to see where I need to be going and what are other states doing so I can prepare my kids even more. I teach at risk 4 year olds under a grant program affiliated with the school district. This is a valuable site for teachers and parents.”
Pre-K teacher, Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A.
“Students absolutely love going on IXL! I find that when they get an answer wrong, they actually do read the explanation!”
Teacher of 5th, 6th, and 7th grade math, Weston, Florida, U.S.A.
“I am teacher of a self contained Intellectual Disabilities and Physically Impaired classroom at the middle school level. Students in my room are academically functioning on about a 1st to 3rd grade level. IXL has been a great site for my students. I especially like the ability to have access to ALL grade levels, as the needs of my students vary widely.”
Teacher, Pasco County, Florida, 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.”
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!!”
Student, Huntington Beach, California, U.S.A.
“I used IXL with a handicapped child with muscular dystrophy who cannot hold a pencil, and it was awesome! He is so behind in math because it was so hard to teach when you could not manipulate a pencil! He did great with IXL, though, using a keyboard on his monitor and typing with his mouse. It is very handicap accessible and I wish more people with handicapped children and students knew about your program!!!”
Teacher, Louisiana, 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
“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.”

“Me and my class love this web site, because it helps us learn. Thanks for making this. IT ROCKS!!”
Student, Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A.
“I really love IXL because the awards and gold medals just motivate you to practice. That is what I did, and I went up 26%, simple as that. When I got my report card in the 2nd trimester, my math went from 74% to 100%! And this is why I recommend IXL to kids and teachers!”
4th grade student, Schaumburg, Illinois, U.S.A.
“I am a student in the 7th grade and I love to do my IXL! I am so good at IXL, my teacher recommended that I step up to 8th grade algebra.”
Student, Elizabethton, Tennessee, U.S.A.
“When I first heard about IXL from my 4th grade teacher I thought it would help me with multiplication and algebra, and it did! Now after I get home from school and do my homework, I just can't wait to get on IXL and help my sisters with it too.”
4th grade student, Chula Vista, California, U.S.A.
“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,
“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
