ALEKS

ALEKS does a great job of helping students fill in the gaps in their learning so that they have a solid foundation to move on to higher-level mathematics. It works very well with self-motivated students. It doesn't seem to work as well with less motivated students.

It is great if you are only one teaching class or if you are course coordinator and can require it across all sections. Could be some push-back if different instructors in same course and some use it and others don't because of additional cost. Need to make sure at least some assignments are required so students feel they are getting their money's worth.

Pros

ALEKS

  • Differentiating instruction
  • Tailoring individualized curriculum to cater to each student's unique needed.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

WileyPLUS

  • It innovates. WileyPLUS is not a stagnant platform. There are updates and new tools/ideas all the time.
  • It supports students and instructors. Too often third-party platforms are challenging because student and instructor support are non-existent. WileyPLUS does a good job supporting students and instructors, and they are very good at creating community among users.

Cons

ALEKS

  • Reports can confuse students
  • Limited ways to solve a problem
  • Can lead to mimicry

WileyPLUS

  • Integration could be a little challenging at times
  • More quantitative examples-excel based questions. This is just for the book that I use so it should not be considered a missing functionality.
  • More algorithmic questions. This is just for the book that I use so it should not be considered a missing functionality.

We did not need much support because installing and running ALEKS on Schoology was relatively easy; the department followed the steps outlined in the user manual on how to install ALEKS and were able to do so quickly. ALEKS help team has been helpful, but overall we did not need their help.

24-7 support is available by phone, chat, or email. They also hold annual events which I have been blessed to attend twice. The staff is excellent. They are knowledgeable and genuinely care about you and your students. There are online forums for instructors to collaborate, learn, and have fun. Instructors receive gift cards for their participation too!

Alternatives Considered

ALEKS

I was not able to find any other products on your list, that I feel are really like ALEKS. I think of ALEKS as more of a teaching platform whereas other platforms I have used--MyMathLab, WebAssign, Knewton--are more of a homework platform.

WileyPLUS is far better than one competing product I have used and noticeably better than a second competing product I have tested. I prefer not to name the other products. It is much easier to operate from an instructor perspective. Given the low level of questions it generates from students, I am certain it is easy for students to pick up and the level of Wiley support given to me and to students is great.

Return on Investment

ALEKS

  • Improved foundational math skills
  • Improved student engagement in math courses

  • Decreased, significantly, my grading time. No more manual grading of work. It is more of a review that allows me to target specific areas and specific students.
  • Students now have resources to help them learn the content when they are away from class.
  • Students get immediate feedback (depending on instructor settings) on problem areas and the ability to learn from their mistakes without having to wait for the instructor.
