Most of the department uses ALEKS for developmental classes in an emporium model setting. One section of traditional developmental is sometimes taught.
  • Helps students fill in gaps in their learning
  • Allows students to work at their own pace
  • Encourages learning
  • Reports can confuse students
  • Limited ways to solve a problem
  • Can lead to mimicry
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.

ALEKS is used by the entire Math Department at my school weekly. We use it in a variety of forms, including warm-up, independent work, homework as well as a tool to differentiate instruction to the individual learning needs of each student. To help close knowledge gaps in foundational math that prevent students from succeeding in high school math courses.
  • Differentiating instruction
  • Tailoring individualized curriculum to cater to each student's unique needed.
  • Lengthy Knowledge Check must be passed for instruction to begin.
  • It does not connect data to Schoology (learning management/grading system used by the school district).
Among the specific scenarios where ALEKS is well suited would be independent work time during which each student could work on improving foundational math skills or on practicing topics recently learned in class. ALEKS is less appropriate when instructing more involved topics (i.e., Algebra 2 material), which would require whole-class instruction by the teacher first.
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.
