K-12 Course Recommendations

Please refer to the recommendations below when selecting an ALEKS course for your students. At any time, you may move students to a new course. If students complete over 85% of their pies after the Initial Assessment, we recommend moving them to a more advanced course; if students complete less than 15%, we recommend moving them to a less challenging course.

Schools vary dramatically; these are only recommendations and not necessarily the course assignment a specific school should follow.

High School Preparation for Algebra 1*

High School Preparation for Algebra 1 focuses on critical prerequisite topics that are central for success in Algebra. This is the best course to prepare students to advance as quickly as possible into Algebra 1 or Algebra 1A.

* If a student completes 50% or more of her pie on the Initial Assessment, we recommend moving the student immediately to an ALEKS Algebra 1 course where she will encounter a significant number of prerequisite and readiness topics that overlap with this course. Otherwise, a student should complete 50% of her pie in Learning Mode before being moved to an ALEKS Algebra 1 course.

Mastery of SAT Math

Mastery of SAT Math is designed to help students achieve mastery of the math topics on the SAT Reasoning Test. This course enables students to efficiently refresh and fill in gaps in their knowledge of the mathematics tested on the SAT. We recommend that students preparing for the test master 100% of the ALEKS course material, and complete SAT practice tests (widely available from other sources) so that they achieve fluency in the particular style and format of the SAT test questions.
