Students register with ALEKS by going to the ALEKS website
and clicking on "SIGN UP NOW!" This will be expedited
if the browsers used by the students have "Bookmarks" or
"Favorites" pointing to the website (Sec. 3.3).
NOTE. In order to register, all students
must have both their Student Access Code and the Course Code for the course
that you are teaching. The Course Code will either be sent to you by ALEKS
Corporation (in your ALEKS Inbox), or be obtained when you create the course
You are responsible for giving this code to the students
at the time of the first session (Sec. 2.1).
The student registration process is described in detail in the User's Guide
(Appendix A). There are complete
online instructions for every step of this simple procedure. Among
other information, students can supply their Student ID
number (if you wish to have this in the system). Special care should
be taken in entering the latter, as the system cannot
detect mistyping. The Student ID is optional information.
Near the conclusion of Registration students receive a Login Name and
choose a Password. These should be noted carefully, as they will be
essential for all further work with ALEKS. Students should choose
a password they will remember easily but that will be hard for others
to guess. Login Name and Password can be typed with upper or lower-case
letters. Neither may contain spaces or punctuation. The Password must
contain at least 6 characters.
