What is ALEKS?

Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine what a student knows, doesn't know, and is ready to learn.  ALEKS avoids multiple choice questions, and instead uses input tools where you type or graph your answer.
