Clicking on the name of a topic from the student's pie chart
will display a page containing an instance of the
problem, followed by the Answer Editor. This is where a solution to the
problem can be attempted (Fig. 5.4). All
practice problems are generated by algorithms, with randomly selected
numerical values, so that the variety of problem instances for any topic is
very high.

Below the Answer Editor are buttons labeled
Next and
Explain. Clicking on Next has the same effect as described for the Assessment Mode: it
submits the answer. Here, however, the user is given immediate feedback on
their answer (Sec. 5.4). If
correct, the student will receive a congratulatory message.
Next, a new problem is presented. In the case
where the topic is considered mastered, the student will receive
two options; the student can choose to click
Done to move on to a different topic, or they can
click More Practice to practice the topic
further.

When the student enters an incorrect answer, ALEKS will return the
presentation of the original problem with feedback on the student's error.
Students can then click the Explain
button.
