After registration, the student practices entering numbers and then takes a brief timed test on entering numbers.
The student will then choose the table they will work on.
After the student achieves a basic familiarity with entering numbers, ALEKS administers an interactive assessment for the chosen table.
Following the initial assessment, the student receives a color-keyed table. In the table, colors correspond to a level of mastery for each math fact. In the below example, the student is an Expert on the green facts but only a Beginner on the blue facts.

The student receives immediate feedback when she enters her response, as well as help with the correct answer if she answers incorrectly.
In ALEKS QuickTables, the memorization of math facts is facilitated by a distributed practice mechanism that closely adapts to the individual student. This enables a learning sequence that carefully mixes new and partially mastered problems, gradually moving the learned facts from short-term memory to long-term memory.
Students have the ability to print 40-question worksheets for additional practice or review. These worksheets are uniquely generated based on the student's math fact mastery.
The Master Account allows students to monitor their progress and adjust program settings.
ALEKS provides students with a wealth of information on their progress, including last login, duration of answer timer, individual performance, and much more. Bar graphs allow students to quickly gauge their performance at the time their last assessment (blue), progress in Learning Mode (green), and the material not yet mastered (yellow).
Students can choose to have access to an onscreen keypad and timer, as well as customize time settings.
