Anyone using Prodigy, IXL, or other online programs? We are using iready in our district as a diagnostic but the lessons seem to be boring for the kids.

We use I-Ready which the students don’t like. I’ve been pushing for IXL. Reasons? I did a trial run for about 20 days and the students responded better to it. I also like the immediate feedback students get with IXL - this was the best feature for my students- they like to know why a question was incorrect. I have a gut feeling they would do better with IXL.


I have used Prodigy in my classroom the last 2 years and the majority of my students love it!


I just wish that students could see how much they’ve done, but agree they love it


We use both IXL and Prodigy- The kids love Prodigy - it is a game and I can assign certain topics. However sometimes the questions are not quite aligned or have wrong answers I like IXL for practice with immediate feedback.


Our district uses MobyMax


We use IXL and Study Island. Both serve different purposes. Anything can be boring to some. The way it’s being used can make the program more or less interesting

We use iReady and IXL. We have taken IXL topics by chapter and give kids the list of them to work on. Depending on the progress at the end of the chapter, they get a summative score for their completion. Also we have a school incentive for iready that as kids hit milestones they travel across the USA and earn prizes. That’s helped us a lot. We also use WIN time so must do things depend on the student.

We use ixl and my kids love it. They were using a program called exact path and found it incredibly dreadful.

I use prodigy and freckle. The kids LOVE both

IXL is great for skills based practices. I make them do it whenever they have free time, I don't use it for instruction.

We started using IXL this year. I just received more training on how to use it effectively this upcoming school year. I like knowing how quick I’ll get to see reports after students complete segments. This past year students didn’t seem to mind using IXL however I wasn’t a pro so they got to pick their own topics. That will change this year

we use IReady. from what I've heard, they are supposed to be revamping the MS to be more "middle school friendly". 🤷 We'll see!! 😁

hi!! which one of all you mention is more suitable for K5? I would appreciate your answers!! thanks

Any other black attorney feeling enraged and hopeless today. I’ve been brutalized by the police before. And I’m supposed to work without question today. The events last week have triggered a reoccurring flood of feelings. I tried to put an away message up saying I was taking the day for personal reasons and I still was asked to do work. Feeling angry, pissed, etc.

Hi, I have a 1st round interview coming up for an associate position at L.E.K. Consulting and was wondering if anyone could give some insight into the interview? I believe it will be 2 cases, 30 min strategy and 30 min quant. Have been doing some case prep over past few months, but nothing too in depth or LEK specific. Kind of nervous - never done a case interview and feel a little underprepared

D fishes: If my manager does not complete snapshot by snapshot deadline, does it not get counted? Or it’s ok if he completes it next week..


If I just want to be an individual contributor at work and never manage anyone, never take on challenges or pursue promotion — how can I express that to my leader without sounding lazy? I really just don’t handle stress well and am happy to take a back seat while my husband brings in the real money but enjoy my current work plus am able to be a more present parent by keeping work manageable this way. Thoughts? Anyone else?
