We needed something self-paced with an ongoing assessment feature that provided adequate feedback.

What math progress has the student experienced since using ALEKS?

My son is learning much faster and comprehending more.

My son is motivated by his assessment results and filling in his pie chart. He is less annoyed and frustrated since using ALEKS. The independence and ability to see his progress for himself has been beneficial.
