Sure! The timer can be great for assigning practice, like work on a game board challenge for an hour or practise a specific skill for fifteen minutes. However, if the timer is a distraction for your students, you can hide it from the practice page.
To hide the timer:
- Sign in to your parent or teacher account, and open your account menu.
- Select Profile & settings.
- Under Settings, check the box for Hide timer.
- Click Submit.
The timer will be hidden from all students on your roster while they are practising, but time is still tracked by IXL. You can access that information when you run reports.
