Overall Experience:

We love ALEKS! Each course is tailored to the specific child and his learning level.

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

We had trouble with math because my kids would move on to another subject before truly mastering the previous topic.

What were you looking for in an online math tool?

I needed a math program that could keep my children on pace, at grade level, and identify their weakest areas.

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

My child is doing well on assessments, and is learning the course material.

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

Because of ALEKS, my children feel like they can really master math. They feel really good about their progress so far.
