At Alma Fuerte, we believe it is necessary to equip our students with academic tools that are effective both at home and in the classroom. One resource that is used regularly in our classrooms is IXL. IXL is an online learning platform that offers students lessons tailored to their academic achievement level as well as lessons that are closely aligned with what students are learning in class. One of IXL’s most notable features is that the learning platform is available virtually anywhere, so students are not limited to using IXL in the classroom. Students are able to use IXL in the comfort of their own home. To access IXL and continue your child's academic journey outside of school, all you need is a computer, tablet, or smartphone with an internet connection.
To ensure that our students are receiving personalized lessons, we have connected students’ past MAP Growth test scores. Our students are tested 3 times a year. This means that the content your child encounters on IXL is leveled with their current skill level. By aligning IXL skills to MAP Growth test scores, we can target individual student needs more precisely. With access to tutorial videos, examples, and endless problem sets, using IXL is like having a personal tutor available anytime, anyplace. Check out the infographic attached to this post to see how to access your child's personal skill plan!
Additionally, IXL offers a skill plan that is designed to help prepare students for the CAASPP (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress). The CAASPP is given to students from 3rd grade and up during the end of the school year. This test is designed to measure students' yearly performance and progress. IXL’s CAASPP skill plan is a great way to supplement what students are already learning in the classroom as it provides a structured path that covers all the necessary topics and skills required for their grade level.
If you are interested in IXL access, please contact your student’s teacher through ClassDojo. Teachers can provide student’s login info and can offer more guidance on how to make the most out of this resource. With IXL, you can academically empower your child on the go, or even from the comfort of your own home.
