ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

4.1 Knowledge Checks in ALEKS


Knowledge Check

Figure 5: Knowledge Check
The Initial Knowledge Check determines which class topics you already have mastery of, which topics are not currently mastered, and which topics you are ready to learn. When the Initial Knowledge Check is completed ALEKS will display your unique knowledge state and individualized learning path.
Additional Knowledge Checks may be scheduled for you by your instructor. These may or may not need to be supervised, depending on the instructor's preference. ALEKS also prompts for automatic Knowledge Checks when you have spent a certain amount of time in ALEKS or have made a certain amount of progress (Fig. 5).
NOTE. Your instructor may require that the Initial Knowledge Check be taken under supervision. Don't try to begin your Initial Knowledge Check at home until you find out where your instructor wants you to take it.
