What is ALEKS?
ALEKS is a proven, online learning platform for Math and Chemistry that helps you get to know each student and provides the equitable support required for all students to succeed. In one single solution, you can design and control your course with both personalized learning to prepare students and your choice of adaptive and nonadaptive assignments and assessments that align with your approach. And, no matter your course format, with ALEKS actionable insights, you can intervene before it’s too late and has more time to create more lightbulb moments.
ALEKS (Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces) is the product of more than thirty years of research by software engineers, mathematicians, and cognitive scientists in the application of Knowledge Space Theory. With support from the National Science Foundation, the research efforts by New York University and the University of California, Irvine has been transformed into a groundbreaking artificial intelligence engine designed to improve student performance.
ALEKS Math Assessment Placement Practice Test
In some universities, all incoming firstyear students must complete the ALEKS Mathematics Placement Assessment before attending orientation and enrolling in classes, including incoming firstyear students who have already received AP math credit.
There will be a maximum of 30 openended questions that take 6090 minutes to complete. None of the questions are multiplechoice. The exact number of questions will vary due to the adaptive mechanism of the assessment. Students who are unable to answer many of the first questions may end up with a shorter assessment. If you come across material that you have not learned, you may answer, “I don’t know.” Do your best to answer each question.

ALEKS Score
The score will be visible in CaneLink within 48 hours of completing the assessment. If the desired placement is not achieved, the ALEKS Prep and Learning Modules will be available for you to review, learn material, retake the assessment and improve your ALEKS score. It is crucial that the scores be reflective of your current mathematical knowledge. Therefore, the scores are valid for 12 months.
Retaking the Math Placement Assessment
It is highly encouraged to retake the assessment at least one other time. You have up to three attempts on the Placement Assessment. Before retaking the assessment however, you will need to practice your learning modules. To access your modules for the first time, you will need to log back into your ALEKS account as if you are going to take the test again.
