Meet ALEKS: MATH Assessment

MATH in your ECC Major

The College of ECC strongly encourages new students to utilize the ALEKS PPL assessment to determine appropriate courses for your first term.

At the time of admission, multiple measures are used to determine preparedness for college-level MATH (and/or English) courses. However, these measures may not accurately reflect your true understanding or ability to learn math concepts. Therefore, in an effort to properly advise, reduce frustration, and set you up for success, the College of ECC offers ALEKS PPL as an assessment tool to determine math/calculus placement. ALEKS PPL helps identify concepts you have already mastered, fundamentals you can learn, and skillsets needed for math and major-related courses. 

ALEKS PPL Overview

ALEKS PPL is three steps: (1) initial knowledge check, (2) learning modules (at least three hours), (3) proctored assessment.
