ABOUT

ALEKS is a web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know regarding mathematics. ALEKS then provides instruction on the topics the student is most ready to learn. ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.

USING ALEKS

Once you register, you will be guided through a 10-minute tutorial that will help you become familiar with the ALEKS system.

After the tutorial, you will take an initial placement assessment in the ALEKS "Assessment Mode." The assessment will create a precise understanding of your knowledge of mathematics. Try to answer each question to the best of your ability. If you do not know the answer, just click "I don't know." Answering questions correctly during your assessment will enable you to avoid repeating these topics later in ALEKS.
