Placement, Preparation & Learning
ALEKS begins with an initial assessment, which must be taken proctored –meaning a person who monitors students during an examination. All proctors must be USU approved.
It is not necessary to review/study before students take their first ALEKS Placement Exam. There is no practice test available. After they have taken the exam, students will receive a placement score that will allow them to register for mathematics and statistics courses.
After the initial ALEKS exam, study materials will be provided for the student based on topics they were not proficient in. These materials are tailored to each student and the course the student wishes to take. The ALEKS Modules are the best way to study to take the ALEKS exam again.
Each ALEKS account comes with 5 attempts of 30 questions each. Attempts have a maximum duration of 3 hours, but usually take students about 90 minutes to complete.
After they have taken their first exam, students can access their learning modules.
They will need to call the closest testing center to them to schedule an appointment and bring a photo ID with them to their appointment.
