The ALEKS Prep and Learning Module


    How long must I spend in the ALEKS Prep and Learning Module between placement assessments?

    If you wish to retake the assessment, you must complete a minimum of ten hours in the Prep and Learning Module. You are encouraged to go beyond this minimum to optimize your chances of higher placement.

    How long do I have access to my Prep and Learning Module?

    You will have six weeks of access from the time that you start using your Prep and Learning module. Note that this six-week window is set by your activation of the Prep and Learning module and does not automatically commence after your assessment.

    Is there an additional fee for my Prep and Learning Module?

    Access to the Prep and Learning Module is included as part of the assessment service.

    Does progress in an ALEKS Prep and Learning Module count toward placement?

    No, you must complete a new placement assessment to update your placement result. While working in the Prep and Learning Module, you will periodically complete progress assessments to solidify your gains in knowledge but these are not used for course placement.

    If I placed into the course I wanted, can I still use the Prep and Learning Module?

    Yes, you are encouraged to use the Prep and Learning Module to improve your chances for success in the course. Placement is the basic prerequisite but taking advantage of the targeted review and learning features in ALEKS can help you more fully prepare. Ultimately, this preparation may also help you earn a better grade in the course.
