ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

6.1 Assessments


Instruction through ALEKS is guided by precise understanding of your knowledge of the subject. This information is obtained by assessments in which ALEKS asks you to solve a series of problems. (ALEKS's estimate of your knowledge is also updated when you make progress in the Learning Mode.) Your first assessment occurs immediately after the Tutorial.
NOTE. Your instructor may require that the first assessment be taken under supervision. Don't try to begin your Initial Assessment at home until you find out where your instructor wants you to take it. Additional assessments may be scheduled for you by the instructor. These may or may not need to be supervised, depending on the instructor's preference. ALEKS also prompts automatic re-assessments when you have spent a certain amount of time in ALEKS or have made a certain amount of progress.
