Navigation Bar
  1. Students can return to their pie by clicking on the MyPie button.
  2. The Review button provides access to topics already added to the pie chart.
  3. Students can look up mathematical terms by searching for a term or by browsing topic areas in the Dictionary; the definition often provides links to other related terms and an example problem.
  4. The ALEKS Calculator will be available only when ALEKS deems its use to be appropriate.
  5. The Worksheet link generates an individualized, 16-question review worksheet. Each student's worksheet is customized based on what that student has been learning.
  6. The Inbox goes to the ALEKS messaging system. Students can ask their teacher a question using ALEKS' sophisticated palette of math tools. Students can only communicate with the teacher using this tool; they cannot email each other.
  7. Students can view a custom Report that details current course mastery and time spent working in ALEKS.
  8. Students can edit/view account Options (e.g., change password, add/change email address).
  9. The English-Spanish Toggle allows students to switch between English and Spanish. The entire interface and all content are translated.

Every ALEKS course begins with an adaptive, artificially-intelligent assessment. The purpose of the Initial Assessment is to determine precisely what the student knows, does not know, and is ready to learn next. The Initial Assessment results are presented in the form of a color-coded pie chart that represents 100% of the course curriculum.

Each slice in the pie chart represents a different topic area. The dark part of each pie slice shows what the student knows in that particular topic area; the light part represents what the student still has to learn. As students work through the course, they fill in their pie charts.

Dark portion represents what the student knows. Light portion represents what the student still has to learn. Ready to learn topics appear in pop-up boxes when a student hovers over a pie slice.

As a student works through the “ready to learn” topics and adds them to the pie chart, ALEKS will reassess the student automatically at regular intervals of progress. These progress assessments occur each time a student adds approximately 20 topics to the pie chart, which ensures that course material is being mastered. Topics in which a student does not demonstrate mastery and retention go back into the pie chart for the student to practice again.
