ALEKS (Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces) is a powerful artificial intelligence-based (AI) assessment software package that zeros in on the student’s mathematical strengths and weaknesses, reports in its findings, and then, if necessary, provides a learning module to improve the student’s knowledge and skill. ALEKS will ask between 25 & 35 questions, none of which are multiple choice. Before beginning the assessment, students will complete an online tutorial so they know how to enter answers in ALEKS. The tutorial and placement make take up to 90 minutes to complete.
If students take the test remotely, they are expected to take the ALEKS placement assessment without assistance from another person or resource. Results from ALEKS will lead to placement in a mathematics course. If students complete the assessment using assistance, there is a strong chance that they will perform poorly in their mathematics course and have to pay tuition fees to retake it.
