ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

14. Objectives


ALEKS also provides a facility for creating multiple sets of programs within a single class (See the Instructor's Guide under Set Objectives / Modules, in the chapter Instructor Module). The Objectives feature makes it possible to prioritize particular sets of items for particular periods of time, by constraining the choices available to the students. When Objectives have been set, students will be guided to these items by the shortest possible path. Items that they are ready to learn, but are not on the shortest path to the Objectives, with be "greyed out"; they will appear in the students' pie charts, but the students will not be able to choose them.
