Ratings and Reviews
Ok, we have used this app for 3 years now. My child hates it. But, here’s why: it makes him work. This app doesn’t really ‘teach’. As the parent/educator, that work falls to you. What the app does is provide a progressive workbook like structure to practice the skills you are learning, be it possessive nouns or 2 digit multiplication. When you get an answer incorrect, it provides the correct answer and then goes on to explain the rule or principle behind reaching the correct answer. Then, and this is why I believe it has garnered ill will - it will make the student go back and practice more questions. Adaptive learning. The more you miss, the further back on the completion bar you go. Which a paper textbook can’t do. So yeah, if the child can slog through a subject he doesn’t understand fully and simply ‘move on’ to the next topic and forget about it - sure that would probably be easier. But, with this app, you can’t fake it. If my child begins to struggle and is slipping back, I know I need to stop the app, take a break, then provide further instruction before he tackles it again. The app is a great, no nonsense workhorse of an app. Mum approved! :-)
I have been using this for about a month and I am already getting mad. Here is the reason why, today I was at 99 and I accidentally pressed the wrong button and that question was an automatic submission. And just because of that I went back down to 83 and I knew the answer. Today I also decided that the app was kinda glitchy because I always count the last few seconds when I’m done and I know 100% that I ended on 4 minutes and 53 seconds but it said on my score it took me 5 minutes and 5 seconds. Also please at least put some boosts in this really really awful app because when I get a question wrong I don’t even waste a second on the things it has to say I just move on. I would like for the boosts to remove the timing part( for a whole session of course because it will be waaaaay too short of it was only for a few seconds.) And this app is like pay or no play because it only gives you about 40 seconds to play for free and then it doesn’t let you do it anymore or you’ll need to pay 20 dollars for math and language arts without the social studies or science ( witch is my favorite lesson) and I am NOT OKAY with that. But if you do make this very very very very very annoying and boring app better I will give a better review and rate it 3 or 4 stars (5 if you lower the pay, please it’s way to expensive.) Plus I bet everyone else will rate it 4 or 5 stars instead of 1 or 2. Thanks if you do it. And if you don’t I hope you survive all of the bad reviews.
Too hard on kids
I am a parent and a teacher. I really like the concept behind IXL and find the choices of skills very thorough. It is a great learning tool in many respects. My kids used to love it because they would get stars they could click on for prizes.
The problems come in when a child gets something wrong (or simply puts in a comma for a number like “1,000” when the app is designed to expect “1000”). IXL will mark them wrong and take them back at least 10-20%, after which they can only get back extremely slowly. My daughter has sat at the computer in tears and bawled about how “mean” it is.
Due to all the frustration, complaints, and tears from kids and parents, my children’s school stopped offering IXL this year and switched the it subscription over to Prodigy. I actually switched my own kids over to Time4Learning to practice because it is much less harsh. It will tell them what they got wrong and explain the reason without expecting them to do a huge portion of the lesson all over again to regain their points.
I would encourage the people behind this app to seriously consider revamping how they tackle “wrong” answers and typos. I get that a kid can need a little more practice, but when it sets them back so terribly far, it takes all the joy of their successes away form them and leaves them devastated. Not good:(!
