How can ALEKS enhance teaching and learning?

ALEKS (Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces) is a web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system that uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine what a student knows and doesn't know in a course. Here are three key points about ALEKS:

  • Adaptive Learning Technology: ALEKS uses adaptive technology to create a personalized learning path for each student, adjusting the complexity of questions based on their responses to accurately gauge their understanding and mastery of various topics.
  • Wide Range of Subjects: It covers a broad spectrum of academic subjects across various levels, including mathematics, science, accounting, and statistics, making it versatile for students of different ages and educational backgrounds.
  • Continuous Assessment and Feedback: ALEKS provides immediate feedback and continuous assessment to help students understand their learning progress, identify gaps in their knowledge, and offer targeted practice to improve their skills.
