Overall Experience:

ALEKS is far better than the summer math books we have tried in the past. I like that ALEKS allows me to track the amount of time that my students spend in the program, which helps me keep tabs on their progress. I will use ALEKS again next summer!

What were you looking for in an online math tool?

I needed a program to help keep my students' math skills intact over the summer.

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

The kids have been able to keep up on their math skills over the summer.

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

ALEKS has been a positive experience for us. The kids have become more independent because of the help in math that ALEKS has provided.
