Additionally, the purchase of IXL provides districts with access to a comprehensive learning solution. The Real-Time Diagnostic is part of IXL’s personalized learning platform, guiding each student toward specific skills in the IXL curriculum that will fill the knowledge gaps identified by the diagnostic. This seamless connection between assessment and instruction helps educators tailor their lessons more efficiently to ensure every student meets key learning objectives.
