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 children, you can hide it from the practice page.
To hide the timer:
- Sign in to your parent 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 children on your account while they are practising, but time is still tracked by IXL. You can access that information when you run reports.
