Top 10 Worst Websites Schools UseThis is a list of the absolute worst educational websites that schools make students use. Feel free to add any school websites you hate.
The reading MyPath is so easy I completed it really quick. It doesn't even make you type anything, it just makes you answer simple comprehension and vocabulary questions! Heck, I passed every single lesson from 5th grade (what I started at) to 8th grade! And I'm a 5th grader!
I-Ready is the WORST of them all. Even worse is the fact that my 8th grade math teacher made the class do I-Ready for 2 hours per week in addition to MobyMax for an additional 1 hour plus assigning us physical homework on paper all 5 days of the week (this was the 2019 - 2020 school year for those wondering). As if going to school wasn't already physically and mentally draining enough. Also, I hate how it makes you repeat lessons even if you learn nothing from repeating it.
I ready is the #1 WORST website in the world to me. I think schools should take bake their money and tell I ready to go and find a pit to sit in forever. and that's from a 6th grader.
Put me under so much pressure! The photos of the teacher was also very distracting. This website made me and probably other people pretty mad.
I had to do XtraMath back in 4th grade (2015 - 2016 school year) and I always hated the "race the teacher" thing that would always stress me out as I was terrible at math.
I get upset because I only got about 2 seconds to solve. though, that guy on it is pretty creepy...
I had to do MobyMax for an hour per week from August 2019 - June 2020 when I was only 13 and in the 8th grade, and boy did I hate it. The website is lame and is only slightly better than stupid I-Ready.
I liked it only because of the whales I could edit.
I will never forget when my 7th grade history teacher assigned the class homework on Achieve 3000 for Thanksgiving Break 2018, Christmas Break 2018 - 19, and Spring Break 2019. I hope I don't get her again next year, because she now teaches at my current high school for 11th grade history and I'm already in the 10th grade. She's that one teacher who assigns homework over the break.
It's not really a website, but I added this anyways because it's spyware that some schools (like mine) install on the computers, and it basically blocks most websites (including ones that actually are appropriate for school) and it spies on you even when you're in your own home. Whoever created this extension deserves to rot in hell someday.
The blocking is annoying like the spying some teachers forgot to turn off the site checking.
It's so annoying and it scares me how the teachers are just watching us and it sucks!
I had to use this website last year in 9th grade, and it sucked. At least my teacher didn't actually make sure we did the assignments and based our grades on the scores we got. This meant that I didn't have to do any work for months on end after I did chapter 2 and got an 80% score overall.
So boring as heck.
Very bad site
My geometry teacher makes the class use this and it sucks.
My friend told me that she was doing IXL and it was so stressful and had to do 107 questions because she got super stressed and was hard.
I'm supposed to be doing it now but it's so depressing, my mom is wondering why I don't want to study, It is because of how stressful and annoying it is. Oh and I have to use it 1 hour a day everyday, I use this because I have a tuition that put me up (by the way my mom is forcing me to do Ixl) lucky you and your parents didn't know this website if they do say bye to your fun life, Bye.
Don't even get me started on this. IXL Math is the worst! It doesn't teach kids anything and just lowers confidence.
My elementary school made us do boring tests on this website.
Worst thing ever. The smart score is rigged, and lots of kids have had break downs because of this(including me). Plus, it costs lots of money which is pointless.
The worst educational extension known to mankind.
If you don't know what this is, it's basically the state testing website for California students.
The website won't let you log in and it has online textbooks that your teachers don't even make you use once, so it's pretty pointless.
The games are so poorly coded, and teachers don't even use the other 50% of this so called app, its more like rotten trash.
I hate this one so much
The videos don't make much sense and the quizzes are very off-topic. You really need to listen to pass these assignments.
It's trash. There are spelling errors everywhere, the math can be wrong, and worst of all, it came from a book, so a lot of the text from the book gets cut off. I remember one time the instructions in the website said "In exercises 13-1" It got cut off! It was ridiculously dumb.
I found many ways to find ways so there is a 3 d maze you can do,some rather fun kid sites, fan fiction (has swear words a bit surprised it isn't blocked) also some games on other kid sites.
Also when you go on a site click something you want to do then click on other things and play them keep it up then click arrow to go back if you realize they are blocking it but quickly, then get off it immediately and it is safe.
The staff members of my school use this stupid website to block basically ANYTHING video-game-related. The only exceptions I've found are most Wikia Fandom pages, and a website called Yandex Games. Everything on Youtube relating to video games is blocked.
It is not fast paced, easy if you understand math class to.
The books weren't exciting and the quizzes were very annoying. Didn't teach me anything.
You had to read at a cetain pace and you couldn't put it higher or lower soemtimes. Also, the storys don't help you and the vocabulary is very difficult as most of the time all of the options are wrong even my teacher struggled on some.
Reflex Math puts me under so much pressure! Don't even get me started on Coach Penny. She waste's time and puts pressure on kids. The games are fun but they don't give enough time.
Some schools use this to torture students during class.
