Overall Experience:

So far, we have been completely pleased with ALEKS! My children are now self-guided, and this makes the mom and the house much happier! We have also found ALEKS Customer Support to be very quick and helpful.

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

It was hard to find time to understand missed topics from a lesson since Mom isn't the "Math Queen".

What were you looking for in an online math tool?

I needed something to help my boys' progress at their varying levels without requiring a lot of time or attention from me.

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

My sons have shown confidence with data, negative fractions, and other skills since they began using ALEKS.

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

They feel very good about ALEKS and their confidence has definitely grown.
