Page 1 of 5 ALEKS Course Component ALEKS is a web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what you know and don’t know in the course, and then provides instruction on the topics you are most ready to learn. When you use ALEKS, you complete only the learning tasks that you need and not those somebody else needs. Students who show a high level of mastery in ALEKS will gain the foundation needed to be successful in the overall course. Each of you will have a password-protected student account in ALEKS. Since all records of your work are kept on the ALEKS servers, you can access your account from any computer connected to the Internet. In this course, you will be required to use ALEKS to help you master course content. Your work in ALEKS will constitute a significant part of your final grade in the course, so be sure to start ALEKS early in the term. ALEKS is very unfriendly to procrastinators; don’t wait until the last minute to finish an ALEKS assignment as an automated progress assessment may interrupt your timing. The first ALEKS homework is due by 11:59 PM on Friday, September 10, 2010. Chapter 1 completion is due by 11:59 PM on Friday, September 17, 2010. Please see the course syllabus for the complete schedule of assignments. ALEKS Registration Before starting ALEKS, you must first register in our ALEKS course. 1. Go to www.aleks.com 2.
