Introduction

ALEKS is an artificially intelligent learning and assessment system that has been used by over 25 million students for Math, Chemistry, Statistics, and Accounting. After quickly and accurately determining each student’s precise knowledge of a subject, ALEKS helps the student work on the topics they are ready to learn. ALEKS intelligence, content, and software are unique and proprietary; they have been developed together, and work in unison. ALEKS digital content provides comprehensive course coverage.

  • Artificial intelligence targets gaps in individual student school knowledge 
  • Course management tools: Gradebook, Course Calendar, and e-Homework with worked examples  
  • Automatically graded assignments: e-Homework, tests, and other assessments
