What is ALEKS?

 

ALEKS, in a nutshell, is a browser-based math learning and assessment tool.  After administering a quiz to assess the student’s math knowledge, ALEKS teaches lessons that the student still needs to master, while reinforcing what has already been learned.  The goal is to move toward mastery of each topic.

What makes ALEKS stand out is it’s use of “adaptive questioning”, which means it quickly determines what a student does and does not know to tailor lessons to that student.  This helps avoid repetitive learning {which can bore a student} while also ensuring topics are being mastered.

Our Thoughts

 

I’m not going to lie, I was intimidated about ALEKS at first…  It’s not like other browser-based math lessons you generally find, which have colorful characters, music, etc.  That doesn’t mean that it isn’t just as good, though.

After I sat down and went through the master account, I understood how to use the program more and quickly discerned it was easy to use and rather spot-on with determining what Babydoll needed to learn.

ALEKS Master Account

When your student first enters ALEKS, they are asked to take an assessment {not multiple choice} that helps the system determine “where they are” in math.  They can type in their answer or choose an option that states the current question is something they haven’t learned yet.

I went through an assessment and answered some and skipped some saying I hadn’t learned the stuff yet and I saw the assessment quickly change to accommodate that.  I think this is very helpful for self-conscious students who might feel bad after selecting “I didn’t learn this” so many times.

Once the assessment is finished, the student is presented with their “pie”, a graphical representation of what they know well and what they will be learning.

ALEKS

From here, the student can click on lessons and start learning!  Once you get over the fear of how “official” looking ALEKS is, I think it is a really good and comprehensive program to teach math.  I really like how it adapts to the student; that’s a total win!
