How does interleaving fit with IXL?
This may be a little off topic, but here goes: My school uses IXL and I’m going to be expected to give homework via IXL along with whatever other homework I may choose to assign. IXL, from what I’ve seen, is great at drilling a single topic over and over, but, from what I’ve seen, doesn’t really support interleaving. IXL gives a score from 0-100 for the students mastery of a topic. I’ve thought about maybe requiring the students to have the score at certain marks by certain days and in so doing have the students sort of interleave that way, but I’m concerned that the students wouldn’t do it or would just do it up to 100 from the get go, which is what they are used to, and so bypass the interleaving. IXL seems like a powerful tool for working the kinks out of procedure, I hate feeling like I’m fighting against what has the potential to be a powerful tool. Any advice or thoughts?
