ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

6.5 Assignments



Figure 6.50: Assignments
The following kinds of assignments can be created in ALEKS: Pie Progress Goal, Time Goal, Topic Goal, Homework, Tests, Quizzes, and Scheduled Assessments (Fig. 6.50). All are optional: ALEKS can be used without any of these, but they may enhance the effectiveness of ALEKS in certain instructional contexts. Pie Progress Goal, Time Goal, and Topic Goal are similar in setup and will be addressed breifly below. Homework, Tests, and Quizzes are similar in how they are configured. The process of creating a Homework assignment will be described below in full detail; Scheduled Assessments will be treated more briefly, focusing on how they differ from Homework, Quizzes, and Tests.
All assignment types are separate categories in the ALEKS Gradebook (Sec. 6.4.25).
