The ALEKS product, platform, and artificial intelligence are regularly updated to best meet the needs of students and educators. Some of the major recent ALEKS releases are highlighted below. For more information, please reach out to MH Media Contacts.
Administrators can efficiently set up and manage classes at all of the schools within their district by creating a district master template, an adaptation of the existing ALEKS school master template feature. A master template is a collection of class settings, content, and assignments that are applied to all classes associated with the master template to create standardized course structures, schedules, and curricula, as well as ensure consistent learning experiences for students. Administrators have access to school-level reports for all of the classes associated with district master templates.
The new suite of ALEKS course products for the Introduction to Statistics course, including prerequisite and corequisite courses, represents a major content and platform update. This update substantially augments coverage in many areas such as prerequisite mathematical skills, real-world uses (and misuses) of statistics, the design of experiments, descriptive statistics, and inferential statistics. There are also new user input tools for confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, linear regression, and normal quantile plots. These tools are visual and interactive, place the student in the role of the researcher, and allow students to focus on learning and applying concepts.
ALEKS GOB is a major content and platform update, introducing a substantial amount of content focused on support for GOB college courses. The ALEKS GOB (Part 1) and ALEKS GOB (Part 2) courses also introduce a new organic structure drawing tool designed for ease and speed of use, and features unique and powerful grading capabilities. Instructors will find that the new content, combined with the adaptivity and customizability of ALEKS, is very helpful in ensuring that all students acquire mastery of the key concepts and skills they need to succeed in GOB classes, either traditional or online.
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.
