ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

11.1 Account Management


When you log in to your ALEKS account, you arrive at the Student Account Home main screen.

Active Classes
All classes in which you have an active account will be listed here. You will see the name of the class, the name of the instructor, the date you last logged in to the account, and the date your access to the class will expire. Additional information can be accessed by clicking on the Show more link, including the Class Code, the Reference ID for the account, the date the account was started, the amount of time spent in the class, and the current level of progress.

Accessing a Class
You can access an active class by clicking on the class name. You will be taken to your Home page for that class and will be able to work on topics. To return to the Student Account Home main screen, click on your name in the upper right corner and select the Account home option. To completely log out, choose the Log out option after clicking on your name.

Inactive Classes
The INACTIVE section will display a list of your classes that are no longer active. The same class information that is displayed in the ACTIVE courses is available here.

Adding a New Class
You can add a new class by clicking on the + NEW CLASS button (Fig. 16). You will be prompted to enter the class code for the new class. Once the new class has been added, it will be displayed in the ACTIVE section on the Student Account Home main page, along with any other active courses. + NEW CLASS creates a new account in a new class, using a new subscription; it does not transfer your current subscription to a different class. To transfer a currently active subscription to a different class (and set the previously active account to inactive), use Switch class (below, Sec. 11.2).

Account Settings
To access your account settings, click on your name in the upper right corner of the Student Account Home main screen, and select Account settings. The pop-up window displays information both for the profile account and for the school that you attend. This information includes your name, Student ID number, and the email address linked to the account. The email address is the only editable entry. To return to the main screen, click on the Save button (if changes were made to the email address) or on the Cancel link.
