ALEKS Adapts to Each Student

ALEKS helps students master course topics through a continuous cycle of mastery, knowledge retention, and positive feedback. Each student begins a new course with a unique set of knowledge and prerequisite gaps to fill. By determining the student's baseline of knowledge, ALEKS creates an individual and dynamic path to success where students learn and then master topics. ALEKS has helped over 25,000,000 students and counting.

Award-Winning Learning Platform

ALEKS has been recognized as an exceptional solution, most recently receiving the EdTech Breakthrough Award for Best STEM Solution in HigherEd.

Research Behind ALEKS

ALEKS was developed at the University of California by cognitive scientists, software engineers, mathematicians, and educators. Using ground-breaking research in Knowledge Space Theory, these pioneers in adaptive machine learning designed an efficient way to determine students’ precise knowledge and provide them with a personalized, meaningful learning experience. ALEKS development was supported by major funding from the National Science Foundation.

Know Each Student Better

ALEKS has patented a machine learning technology called ALEKS Insights (U. S. Patent No. 10,713,965) to promptly alert educators to at risk students. ALEKS Insights provides email notification to instructors calling attention to students (a) who are not succeeding, (b) who cease succeeding, (c) who are excessively procrastinating, or (d) who are learning unrealistically fast. These formative insights enable instructors to take timely action to help the students that need it the most.
