IXL Launches Universal Screener to Identify At-Risk Students

Ed tech provider IXL has launched a new universal screener designed to help educators determine student proficiency levels and identify students who may be at-risk or in need of extra supports.

The tool, called IXL Real-Time Diagnostic, analyzes students' ability in math and English language arts and generates a personalized action plan for each student based on results. Assessments take about 45 minutes to complete in each subject area.

According to IXL, Real-Time Diagnostic is "complimentary during the 2022–2023 school year with an IXL Math site license."
