ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

6.4 Assignments


The following kinds of assignments can be created in ALEKS: Homework, Quizzes, Tests, and Scheduled Assessments. All are optional: ALEKS can be used without any of these, but they may enhance the effectiveness of ALEKS in certain instructional contexts. Homework, Quizzes, and Tests 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 assignments are separate categories in the ALEKS Gradebook (Sec. 6.5), and so it is helpful to keep them distinct from the viewpoint of class management and grading.
