IXL is probably the WORST form of punishment to a child. It's down right abuse! IXL belongs in a dungeon as a way to interrogate people. Please save your money and DONT buy IXL. I have been forced at school to use this and it's horrible.and this is why it's so bad. 1.it's so frustrating! Every time you get an answer right your score goes up buy like 3 points (you have to get up to 100) and every time you get one wrong it goes down by 7-10 points. Also as you get further into that skill points go up by less and down by more. It's hard and stressful. 2.the skills just aren't grade appropriate. I'm in 6th grade and there is still counting money value which is also a second grade skill;-;. 3. It's expensive for just a month you will have to pay upwards of 20 bucks! Guys come on if you want trash it's outside for free! Don't waste your valuable money on this crap. Now there are good aspects of IXL to. 1.its good for making people spill their secrets one look at the IXL screen will have them spilling the beans real fast. Anyway I know I'm just some sixth grader and your pro lanky not gonna wanna except the truth that IXL is that bad but cmon go to any review site and you'll see the bad reviews overflowing.
