"My experience with ALEKS has been effective and efficient. Our students' pass rates improved from 49 percent to 82 percent with ALEKS. We also saw student retention rates increase by 12 percent in the next course. Students feel empowered as they guide their own learning through ALEKS."

"We received impressive results using ALEKS in our Basic Math course with 28 out of 40 students, roughly 70 percent of our students, receiving a “C” or better -- a grade enabling them to progress to the next course. Our pass rate jumped from 41 percent to 75 percent in our first semester using ALEKS."
“Students using ALEKS performed significantly better than those who had not on the exams that tested the underlying financial accounting material. Furthermore . . . I spent far less office-hour time tutoring students on financial accounting material. ALEKS provides a great way for educators teaching the introduction to accounting course to address the functional competencies of financial accounting in both an efficient and effective manner.”
- Ryan J. Baxter and Jay C. Thibodeau, Bentley University, MA
“Among other factors, the amount of time that has transpired since a student took intro financial accounting negatively impacts intermediate accounting performance . . . ALEKS partially or completely removes the disadvantages associated with this and other factors. Overall, the ALEKS program is accurate in its assessment of student knowledge, and is effective in refreshing students' understanding of introductory material in accounting.”

"The single most important effect that ALEKS has had is a fundamental shift in my office hours. Students are no longer asking me basic questions, but are instead asking about the very difficult, multi-concept, end-of-chapter questions. Even my weaker students are able to get to and focus on the more challenging questions. ALEKS is obviously helping students learn the background concepts, and I can now spend time in office hours and lecture integrating multiple concepts and going deeper into the material."

"ALEKS completely removed the achievement gap between different groups of students in my psych-stats course! ALEKS provides a potential solution to a critical national problem."
