This is for practice and keeping sharp. Please achieve a smart score of 80 AND work for at least 20 min on EACH topic. Please read the FAQ below to help answer any questions you have about the requirements. This assignment will count as your first graded IXL assignment for the first marking period and is due by 8am on Friday, September 6, 2019.
As a bonus, once the entire assignment is completed you will have an opportunity to earn extra credit points on a future quiz. For each full hour spent on IXL’s Diagnostic Arena you can earn an extra credit point with a maximum of 10 potential extra points earned.
Please contact the main office for questions regarding IXL usernames and passwords. If you have trouble completing a given category, please refer to videos on the topic at https://www.khanacademy.org/
Also, please note that due to summer updates, complete the targets by title not by target number. Target numbers may change.

FAQ Section:
- What if I have already done that skill on IXL?
- If you have spent time previously working on an assigned skill, you must spend another 20 minutes on the skill between the dates of June 5, 2019 and September 6, 2019. If your smart score was previously a 100, you must spend 20 minutes on the skill between 6/6/19 – 9/6/19 or until you reach a 100 ‘again’. If you smart score was between 1-99, you must spend the full 20 minutes on the skill between 6/6/19 – 9/6/19 or until you reach a 100 from your previous score and then 100 ‘again’.
- What if I cannot reach a smart score of 80 after 20 minutes?
- If you cannot reach a smart score of 80 in 20 min, watch a video on the skill on Khan Academy and read through the IXL worked out solutions, then try for an additional 20 min. If you still cannot reach a smart score of 80 after 40 min, write a note to the teacher and you will still receive full credit for the assignment.
- What if I reach a smart score of 80 before 20 minutes is up?
- Keep up the good work! Keep working for the full 20 minutes to try to reach a smart score of 100. If you reach 100 before the 20 minutes is up, you may stop early.
- How can I check my minutes?
- Minutes can be checked through the “Analytics” tab at the top of the page.
- Remember that IXL only records your ACTIVE time. Be sure to verify you have the full, required time before moving on to the next category.
