ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

3.7 First Assessment


Immediately after the tutorial, students proceed to their Initial Assessment or Knowledge Check (Chap. 4). To reiterate, no help of any kind should be given to students being assessed, not even rephrasing a problem. It is also advisable for students to have pencil and paper for assessments in ALEKS. A calculator is included in ALEKS when needed.
The ALEKS assessment is adaptive and variable in length. Consistency of effort and concentration may influence the length of an assessment.
NOTE. All students will be assessed on their first use of the system. This will provide you with a baseline picture of your class and of each individual student.
