Overall Experience:

We love ALEKS! My daughter is able to work independently, which frees me up to spend time with our younger children.

What challenges did the student face in math prior to using ALEKS?

In the past she has been frustrated by programs where she cannot work at her own pace or take control of her studying.

What were you looking for in an online math tool?

I needed a program that my daughter could use on her own without a great deal of supervision.

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

Because of ALEKS, my daughter no longer dreads math, and her skills have definitely improved.

How does the student feel about his/her progress in ALEKS?

My daughter loves to see her progress in ALEKS. The biggest improvement I've seen so far is my daughter's confidence level. She has a completely different attitude towards math now.
