ALEKS PPL Overview

Steps to ALEKS PPL

ALEKS PPL is a three-step process to assess for calculus readiness or math placement level:

  1. Create an ALEKS PPL account and complete an initial knowledge check (unproctored ALEKS PPL assessment)
  2. Study in personalized learning modules (at least three hours)
  3. Complete a proctored ALEKS PPL assessment (scheduled with ProctorU or hosted by Chico State).

Learn more about how Chico State uses multiple measures to determine first-year math placement.

Preparing for Spring 23 Enrollment

For virtual and flexible scheduling, use ProctorU to book a proctored assessment ($10 or more).

As an alternative, FREE proctor sessions are also available. Complete the Google Form to register. You must be available for the entire proctor session (30 minutes for check in/out/advising and two hours for the assessment). All sessions below are in Tehama Hall, Room 131 (computer lab).
