ALEKS PPL Math Placement Assessment

CSU, Chico requires an ALEKS Placement, Preparation, and Learning (ALEKS PPL) assessment to determine readiness for calculus courses and utilizes the same assessment for International students. This is a "Placement Assessment" not a test. 

A math placement assessment measures what a student knows and what they need to improve before taking math courses at Chico State. After taking the ALEKS Placement Assessment, students will be provided with a personalized learning path designed to strengthen their knowledge gaps in math.  Students will then have a chance to review topics that may have been forgotten or haven't been practiced for a while and then reassess with a proctor for an official placement score.
