Viewing ALEKS Placement Assessment Scores

Minimum ALEKS scores were derived from analysis of the specific skills needed to meet the objectives outlined in course descriptions and syllabi. These scores suggest basic readiness for successful completion of a course.

Since mathematical skills are cumulative, a student cannot master higher-order skills without first demonstrating mastery of more basic skills.
