ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

6.2 Progress Indicator


Mastery of problems is based on a point system: one point added for a correct answer, two points added for two correct in a row without using the Explanation page, and one point subtracted for an incorrect answer. The number of points cannot go below zero. ALEKS considers a topic learned when a student earns a total of five points for that topic. The bars in the progress indicator represent how many points you have earned for the current topic (top right of the Learning Page). The progress bars change color to show how the topic is going: green to show success, yellow, orange, and red to indicate difficulty.
