K12 Course Recommendations
Please refer to the recommendations below when selecting an ALEKS course for your students. At any time, you may move students to a new course. If students complete over 85% of their pies after the Initial Knowledge Check, we recommend moving them to a more advanced course; if students complete less than 15%, we recommend moving them to a lower course.
Please use these as guidelines. Schools, classes, or students with unique needs may fall outside of these course recommendations.
