ALEKS Math Placement Information

ALEKS (Aassessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces) is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system that uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in a course.

ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics they are most ready to learn and as a student works through a course, it will periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained.

ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and avoids multiple-choice questions so that when a student shows a high level of mastery for a course, they will be successful in the actual course they want to take.

ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any Web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.

Do I Qualify?

Students who qualify are those who:
(1) apply to MCC and complete New Student Orientation (NSO).
(2) have an ALEKS account that is still valid and have remaining attempts to take the placement test.
(3) complete the SmartMeasure readiness assessment and review your results with an Advising Staff member(an FYE Advisor, Enrollment Navigator or Academic Advisor).

Note: all five placement tests must be completed within one year from when a student registers for an ALEKS PPL account.

What's the policy for an ALEKS math placement test account?

Students who are not exempt from math placement via ACT scores, math placement via high school transcripts or academic program math requirement may participate in the MCC Math Boot Camp to create an ALKES PPL account.

Each ALEKS PPL account is valid for one year and provides students with five opportunities to take the placement test for a better placement score (if necessary).

All five placement tests must be completed after completing ALEKS skill building exercises in-between each retake and within one year from the time a student registers for an ALEKS PPL account.

Express retesting is available without ALEKS skill building for $20 per each attempt.
